Scrape with NodeJS and JQuery: Get your IP, Host and User-Agent

Hey fellas, sorry for being absent for a long time, mainly it was lots of work on other projects.

In this post I am going to teach you how to screen scrape using NodeJS and JQuery (cheerio). Its relatively easy, here is the code:

var request = require('request'); // we need request library
var cheerio = require('cheerio'); // and cheerio library/ JQuery
// set some defaults
req = request.defaults({
  jar: true,                 // save cookies to jar
  rejectUnauthorized: false, 
  followAllRedirects: true   // allow redirections
// scrape the page
    url: "",
    headers: {
        'User-Agent': 'Google' // You can put the user-agent that you want
  }, function(err, resp, body) {
  // load the html into cheerio
  var $ = cheerio.load(body);
  // get the data and output to console
  console.log( 'IP: ' + $('#ip').text() );  //scrape using CSS selector
  console.log( 'Host: ' + $('#hostname').text() );
  console.log( 'User-Agent: ' + $('#useragent').text() );
