Create a webscraping process for linux machine

Hi Team,

I’m working on the automation of the scraping of one of the websites and save extracted data in excel. I could create a workflow to perform this activity in my windows machine. I would like to perform this activity in a linux machine. Is it possible to create linux based workflows to scrape a website and run those in a remote machine ( where we might have headless chrome installed)? As far as I know, there are very limited number of activities available for Linux based robot, which are not sufficient for my case.

Looking forward for a positive response.

Thanks in advance !
