Episode #50: Web scraping at scale with Scrapy and ScrapingHub

Published Tues, Mar 15, 2016, recorded Tues, Feb 16, 2016.


What do you do when you are working with an amazing web application that, for whatever reason, doesn't have an API? One option is to say I wish that site had an API and give up. Or, you could use scrapy, an open source web scraping framework from Pablo Hoffman and scrapinghub.com and create your own API!

On episode 50 of Talk Python To Me, we'll talk about how to do this, when it makes sense, and even when it's allowed.
