const { ApifyClient } = require('apify-client');

const client = new ApifyClient({
token: 'MY-APIFY-TOKEN',

// Starts an actor and waits for it to finish.
const { defaultDatasetId } = await'john-doe/my-cool-actor').call();

// Fetches results from the actor's dataset.
const { items } = await client.dataset(defaultDatasetId).listItems();
