Description:

Import.io allows users to extract structured data from websites without writing any computer code. Users simply navigate to a website and teach the browser to extract data by showing it examples of where the data is; learning algorithms then generalize from these examples to work out how to get all the data on the website. The data that users collect is stored on import.io’s cloud servers to be downloaded and shared. Users can also generate an API from the data allowing them to easily integrate live web data into their own applications or third party analytics and visualization software. The import.io data browser is free to download from the website.
