WebHere is an Objective-C framework for web scraping, packaged for iOS 8+ and OSX 10.10+ platforms.

Those two projects really deserve attention on their own, make sure to visit their page and understand their APIs, as WebHere will mostly provide a unified facade to their APIs.
To run the example project, clone the repo, and run
pod install from the Example directory first.
Having a look at the test cases provided should give you an overview of the API.
Example folder contains an iOS app that maps HTML to query Google.
Dependencies are automatically managed by Cocoapod. In case you have to add WebHere to your source tree and use it outside Cocoapod, you must add the following projects along with WebHere:
WebHere is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:
Alternatively, you can add these sources as a git submodule.
