Web Design Scraper


Web Design Scraper is a research tool for extracting objective web design measurements from a web page.

Web design measurements are aspects from web design that are representable in numerical form, generated by procedural algorithms.

In this tool, you can download the extracted measurements in a JSON file, which can be used as machine learning inputs for:
➡️ Predicting the usability of websites
➡️ Classifying website based on certain design measurements
➡️ Scoring website quality and design aesthetic

Our algorithms can extract the following measurements:
➡️ Symmetry (Calculate ciede2000 average from the screenshot)
➡️ Complexity (Estimate text elements usage in the web page)
➡️ Density (Estimate negative space usage)
➡️ Cohesion (Calculate image elements aspect ratio consistency)
➡️ Economy (Calculate UI element size consistency)
➡️ Simplicity (Get total alignment points of UI elements)
➡️ Dominant colors
➡️ Font families
➡️ Text size distribution

More design measurements are currently being researched. 🔬

This extension is the implementation of the web design scraping concept that we coined in our research paper [1].

Visit our GitHub Repo to see how we extract the web design measurements:
