Fminer alternative

Any suggestions on a program that's similar to Fminer? The domain for Fminer runs out early next year and will probably be dead at that point.

Fminer alternative

Im still hoping we get a nice surprise and this becomes open source or at a minimum no longer requires server authorisation.

There are alternatives which I find myself using more & more as there are increasing sites that just do not interact well (if at all) with FMiner, but I will be honest I do not find them as intuitive as FMiner.

Although it looks like this project is dead Im still not comfortable openly recommending alternatives here. If you google Scraping Apps you will get a nice list, Ive tried nearly all of them and each has there pros & cons (learning curve, cost etc), its all down to what you prefer I guess.

As I have said in previous posts I have been on here when admin is on here, and that as no that long ago, I would just like to know why they wont respond to anything, seem really strange, but it does seem that it is a matter of time before this happens.

Anyway hope that helps.

Don't get me wrong, I very much like Fminer. Just trying to be ready in case we're hung out to dry.

Fminer is the best web scrapper but there is no support anymore. I need help for months now to reset my license (my windows installation died) so i can activate again on a clean installation of windows. They should really disable server authentication. We paid a lot for this program and spent so much time to learn it…. Please do something!!!!

Fminer was great tool but unfortunately there is no support at all!
If you have it active on your machine never try to deactivate it for transferring licence because transfer can only be done once support guy unlock it.

You can find some alternative Web Scraping software on my blog

Finally made a transition to UiPath. Little bit of a learning curve, but well worth it. Has what's called a Community Edition that is free and extremely powerful. If you're serious about scraping this is the one.

Fminer will probably go down after 3/25/21 when their domain expires. Just a heads up.

Would have been great if they had just kept Fminer going and updated.

@mark_a_g Thanks for the info on UIPath I actually gave this is a go recently for pulling data from an api and saving out to csv, and it worked really well.

Gutted about Fminer, I have used this daily since I purchased, hoping the domain gets renewed.

Again have said a few times, i have seen admin on these boards, so someone is checking in, why can you not just respond to some these questions? and if you are giving up on the project can we not find a way to continue it?
