API Overview

A-Parser supports management through an API, which allows integrating the scraper into complex systems (for example, SaaS), using A-Parser's capabilities from other programs and scripts.

The API is implemented based on the HTTP protocol and JSON data serialization and can be used from any programming language.

curl \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-d '{"password":"123","action":"ping"}'



Usage Examples

  • Calling and processing single or batch requests to any of the scrapers, for example:
    • Getting a list of links from Google for a query
    • Translating text through Google Translate/Yandex Translate/DeepL
    • Obtaining domain parameters, such as registration date, Alexa rank, and many others
  • Queuing tasks and retrieving results
  • Managing the task queue and monitoring the status of tasks
  • Automating the operation of a scraper farm

Ready-Made Clients

There are ready-made clients for A-Parser that simplify working with the API:





Forming a Request

Interaction with A-Parser occurs over the HTTP protocol with JSON serialization of the request and response. To make a request to the API, you need to perform a POST request to the address:


The following headers must be passed:

  • content-length
  • content-type: application/json

The body of the request uses a JSON-serialized structure:

"password": "pass",
"action": "oneRequest",
"data": {


  • password - password for A-Parser
  • action - the API method being called
  • data - request parameters, specific for each type of request, a full list and description here

The response generally looks like this:

"success": 1,
"data": "..."


  • success - the success of the API request, can take a value of 1 or 0
  • data - the response to the called method, can be a scalar or an object, depending on the type of request

PHP Code Example

We recommend using the client for PHP, this code without using the client is provided for informational purposes:

$aparser = '';

$request = json_encode(array(
'action' => 'oneRequest',
'data' => array (
'parser' => 'SE::Google',
'preset' => 'Pages Count use Proxy',
'query' => 'test'
'password' => 'pass'

$ch = curl_init($aparser);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $request);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Content-Length: ' . strlen($request)));
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8'));

$response = curl_exec($ch);

$response = json_decode($response, true);
echo $response['data']['resultString'];

Perl Code Example

We recommend using the client for Perl, this code without using the client is provided for informational purposes:

use LWP;
use JSON::XS;

my $aparser = '';

my $request = encode_json {
'action' => 'oneRequest',
'data' => {
'parser' => 'SE::Google',
'preset' => 'Pages Count use Proxy',
'query' => 'test'
'password' => 'pass'

my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new();

my $response = $ua->post(
'Content-Type' => 'text/plain; charset=UTF-8',
'Content-Length' => length $request,
'Content' => $request

if($response->is_success) {
my $json = decode_json $response->content();
print $json->{'data'}->{'resultString'};
else {
warn 'Response fail: ', $response->status_line();

Getting an API Request in the Interface

To get the full API request in the Task Editor, there is a Get API request function. With its help, you can get the full JSON for use in the method addTask

Redis API

The Redis API is an alternative way of integrating A-Parser through a Redis server, providing greater flexibility and performance in some scenarios
