Versatile Crawler is basically an extension to crawl pages and content in an TYPO3 CMS installation. It is developed on the basis of TYPO3 CMS version 8. The extension has a clear and easily understandable structure and provides queue and crawler functions for pages and records.

Installation & Setup

Clone the extension from GitHub, manually or via composer, and activate the extension via the extension manager. Create a crawler configuration record on the page you like to start the indexing on, e.g. on the homepage. Go the scheduler module and create a queue task and a process task. Configure a cron job that triggers TYPO3 CMS' scheduler.
