In other words, Mixnode allows you to think of all the
web pages, images, videos, PDF files, and other resources on the web as
rows in a database table; a giant database table with trillions of rows that you can query using the standard Structured
Query Language (SQL) . So, rather than running
web crawlers/scrapers you can write simple queries in a familiar language to retrieve all sorts
of interesting information from this table of live data. From parsing HTML/XML and JSON to handling
date/time and processing text, there are numerous built-in functions
to use directly in your queries. By combining table columns and built-in functions you can practically analyze the web
in an infinite number of ways. It is an end-to-end solution that takes you from question to answer with a simple query; you don't
need to deploy web crawlers or run scrapers, you don't need to process raw data, and there are no
"intermediate results".
