import { FireCrawlLoader } from "@langchain/community/document_loaders/web/firecrawl";

const loader = new FireCrawlLoader({
url: "", // The URL to scrape
apiKey: process.env.FIRECRAWL_API_KEY, // Optional, defaults to `FIRECRAWL_API_KEY` in your env.
mode: "scrape", // The mode to run the crawler in. Can be "scrape" for single urls or "crawl" for all accessible subpages
