FAQ
Good suggestions so far, though i highly recommend you check out phantomjs.org. Phantom is a headless version of WebKit which is the rendering engine behind Chrome & Safari. It's the most comprehensive solution to handling AJAX content when scraping in my book since it's technically the same as interacting with a page loaded by your browser.

Only just picked it up last week, but it worked well enough-- node.io. It exposes a
jQuery-esque interface for querying scraped pages. Extremely high level, "just works"
scraping module, in my book!

It also has a fairly sizable task-processing system built in, which I have not used.

Good luck:

Hey guys . I tried to scrape a data from a website using PHP cURL lib but
I failed since cURl allows you to scrape only static content . But the
content I want to scrape changes via javascript(AJAX) since cURL cant
hanfle that I couldnt handle scraping via cURL . So I heard the this type
of things can be done via node . Basically I need to make my node app
handle this js wait for some time until AJAX is done and the pass it to
php .So is it possible to do via node.js ? I dont know node and I have to
start from scratch so I am here you to point out the right node framework
to use to get the result I explained .
