What is the name of the tool?
| Tool Class
To what "family" does the tool belong? Pick as many categories as are appropriate. EG: Data Collection, Security, etc. The wiki will automatically create a link to the relevant tool class.
|Data, Data Scraping|
Who made the tool? Sometimes the tool name and the developer name are the same, and sometimes, they are different.
|Software Innovation Lab LLC|
| Date Created
What was the date when the tool was first launched?
| Still Maintained?
Do the developers of the tool continue to work on it, adding features and fixing problems?
| Open Source?
Is the tool's source code original source code freely available and may it be redistributed and modified? (This makes it possible for users to employ the tool for free, with some technical effort.)
Pick the platforms on which the user would primarily use the tool. Be as selective as possible. If a tool works mainly in the browser, select "Web". If the user can technically load the interface on a smartphone but have a very poor experience, do not select "Android" or "iOS". "Mac" and "PC" are for apps that must be installed to a machine in order to run, as opposed to running from a browser.
What is the main website where a user can learn more about the tool? (Remember to include "http://)."
| Payment Structure
How, if at all, does a user pay to use the tool. Select all that apply: "Free" if there are components of a service that can be used for free; "Paid" if payment is required (either one-time, or at a given rate upon use) for use of the tool's full functionality; "subscription" if a monthly payment is required.
| Languages Supported
What languages does the app's interface support? Note: some apps allow users to communicate in other languages but require the user to use an English language interface. In this case, the app is considered only to support "English".
| Skill Level Needed
DataMiner is a Data Scraping extension for the Chrome browser. The tool can be used to extract data from a website in a .csv or table format. The tool comes pre-stocked with "recipes" for extracting information from common websites, like LinkedIn, and it integrates with the Recipe Creator tool to gather information using a customized formula.
As of July 2017, Data-Miner uses a freemium model. Users can extract up to 500 pages per month for free. (If the user at any point exceeds 500 page scrapes per month, the account is locked until it upgrades to a paid plan.) Subscription plans enable more page scrapes an access to more recipes.
What Makes This Tool Different from Others in its Class?
There are a variety of other tools in the Data Scraping class. Unlike ParseHub, which is is a desktop utility, DataMiner is a web-based service. The subscription cost is relatively low compared with other scraping services, although ParseHub offers discounts for nonprofits.
