Get feedbacks in few seconds!

Your users' feedbacks are the most important thing for your products, but it's hard to quickly get them all!

The Chrome Extension Review Extractor API helps you to get all extensions reviews and export all of them to a CSV file.

A simple process

For each Chrome extension, the API will automatically:

  • Extract all reviews
  • Save all the data in a CSV file in the cloud

What you'll need to set to make it work? ⚙️

  • CSV/ Spreadsheet URL or Chrome extension URL: The link of a Google Spreadsheet (or CSV) with extensions URLs or one extension URL set manually.
  • Number of extensions to scrape per launch: The API can be stopped at any time and relaunched later. This option defines the number of extensions scraped per launch.

(You already have all that? Click straight away on "Use this API")

If it's your first time, follow the full setup process. (2 min)

1. Create an account on Phantombuster.com 💻

If you haven't already, create a FREE account on Phantombuster. Our service browses the web for you. It’s a service which runs in the cloud. Once done we'll follow up.

2. Use this API on your account.👌

We cooked up in our lab a script with first-class attention.
Now that you're connected to Phantombuster, Click on the following button (it will open a new tab).

3. Click on Configure me!

You'll now see the 3 configuration dots blinking. Click on them.

4. Add a Google Spreadsheet 📑

Below the section CSV/ Spreadsheet URLs or URLs to scrape you’ll be able to define the list of URLs on which you want to work.

If you want to use a Google Spreadsheet make sure the document is shared correctly to be publicly accessible, then set its URL to the textbox.

Your spreadsheet should contain a list of URLs in the first and only column (one extension URL per row).

Click on Launch & Enjoy!

It’s done! All that is left to do is to click on "launch" to try your script!

For example, 2 extensions scraped per launch, 8 launches per day: you'll have 16 extensions scraped per day.

Limits

Please be aware that Google tries to detect bots navigating on the Chrome Extension Marketplace.
We have noticied that scraping extensions with many reviews (+2000 reviews) hit the "Bot detection".
If you reached this limit, you need to wait 5 minutes to continue the scraping.

Output

This API will output CSV and/or JSON containing the following fields:

  • profileImg
  • name
  • profileLink (The Google+ link of the review author)
  • date (Time when the review was written/modified)
  • mark
  • review (The review content)
  • url (The Chrome Extension URL)

Developers

Like all APIs on Phantombuster, this API comes with an HTTP endpoint. Launch it from your computer, app or server with a simple HTTP request and get its result as JSON. Click Use this API above to create your new endpoint.

Clone this API

The script below is all that's required to make the API work. If you're a developer, click the button to clone the code into a new Custom API Agent in your Phantombuster account. This operation will allow you to customize the API to your exact needs. This will also create a custom HTTP endpoint.
