URL Extractor is an app to extract and collect emails and urls in an automatic unattended way from local files on your Mac or from the web starting from web pages or search engine keywords.
URL Extractor can be used to extract thousands of email addresses or other URLs, as example web addresses, in various mode:
– Inserting (or importing) a list of web page addresses, the app will use those web pages as a seed to start to collect data and visit linked pages, proceeding in a background navigation to the requested deep level collecting data till the user decide to stop.
– Inserting (or importing) a list of keywords and using them as a starting point to run a search on a user specified search engine. The app will use the obtained pages to proceed in a navigation and data collection to the requested deep level till the user decide
– Specifying a list of files and folders on the local hard disk to extract from and extracting in all the subfolder at any deep level
The user can watch live, during extraction, the extracted URLs filling the table. Filters can be used to decide what accept or exclude.
The extracted URL will be ready to be saved on disk for later use for any purpose.
The app uses various settings that can be modified to find the right balance for any search.
URL Extractor is document based to allow the user to save all the settings relative to an extraction, local based or on web based , inside a document to save on disk for later reuse.
Considering the large and dynamic nature of the web, an extraction with some specific parameters could be infinite and with different results at different time.
