Metaget - Nodejs module to fetch remote Meta Tags (including Open Graph) from URL

A Node.js module to fetch HTML meta tags (including Open Graph) from a remote URL

Installation

npm install metaget --save  

Usage

var metaget = require("metaget");  
metaget.fetch('https://wordpress.com', function (err, meta_response) {  
    if(err){
        console.log(err);
    }else{
        console.log(meta_response);
    }
});

Response will be a Javascript Object containing all the meta tags from the URL. All tags are output in the example above. Some tags with illegal characters can be accessed by:

meta_response["og:title"];  

Options

It's possible to set any HTTP headers in the request. This can be done by specifying them as options in the call. If no options are provided the only default header is a User-Agent of "request".

This is how you would specify a "User-Agent" of a Google Bot:

var metaget = require("metaget");  
metaget.fetch('https://wordpress.com',{headers:{"User-Agent": "Googlebot"}}, function (err, meta_response) {  
    if(err){
        console.log(err);
    }else{
        console.log(meta_response);
    }
});
