Summary

A simple node web scraper to extract your linkedin connection emails

Description
LinkedIn allows you to export all of your connections' info into a csv, except for emails. Additionally their API stopped allowing the extraction of emails around the year 2014. So I wrote a simple script to get your connection emails for your use.

    showNightmare = result.showNightmare === "yes" ? true : false

    Aka
    if( true)
    showNightmare = true
    else
    ShowNightmare = false

    @Codex404 "yes" is not equal to true though. The point is to make it human friendly.

    Out of curiosity, is it still possible to get the email without the use of any API?
    I think they used to export the connections with the emails but that was obviously removed some years ago...

    @rui902 currently there is no way of getting the emails. Not via connections export nor the API. Here is a blog post I wrote explaining the process of making the script if you are interested. https://dev.to/futoricky/...
