If you are trying to do web-scraping or scrape web-page in C# then in this article, I have provided console application to scrape website content using AngleSharp NuGet package in C#.

So first, we will create a new console application project in Visual Studio, I am using VS 2022 with .NET Core 5, but you can use .NET Core 6 or old .NET framework.

Once Visual Studio generates console application template, you will need to install NuGet Package(AngleSharp), by navigating to Tools -> NuGet package manager -> NuGet Package manager console.

Install-Package AngleSharp

Now, we will be scraping this website data (http://books.toscrape.com/catalogue/category/books/mystery_3/index.html)

We will scrape Book name with prices in C# AngleSharp code from above website.

So here is the C# Console application code

using AngleSharp;
using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace WebScrapingCsharp
    public class Program
        static async Task Main(string[] args)
            var config = Configuration.Default.WithDefaultLoader();
            var address = "http://books.toscrape.com/catalogue/category/books/mystery_3/index.html";
            var context = BrowsingContext.New(config);
            var document = await context.OpenAsync(address);
            var cellSelector = "ol.row li h3 a"; //html element to get book names
            var cells = document.QuerySelectorAll(cellSelector);
            var titles = cells.Select(m => m.TextContent).ToList();

            var cellSelector2 = "ol.row li p.price_color"; //html element to get prices of each book
            var cells2 = document.QuerySelectorAll(cellSelector2);
            var prices = cells2.Select(m => m.TextContent).ToList();

            for(var i=0; i < titles.Count(); i++)
                Console.WriteLine(titles[i] + " : " + prices[i]);


The output of the above code is as below

Sharp Objects : £47.82

The Past Never Ends : £56.50

In the above code, we are:

  • Setting up the configuration for supporting document loading
  • Asynchronously get the document in a new context using the configuration
  • Using QuerySelector, we get all cells with the content of interest
  • Then using Linq, we get our required data.
