Screen-scraping library

Project description

Beautiful Soup is a library that makes it easy to scrape information from web pages. It sits atop an HTML or XML parser, providing Pythonic idioms for iterating, searching, and modifying the parse tree.

Discontinuation notice

You should use the 'beautifulsoup4' package instead of this package.

Development on the 3.x series of Beautiful Soup ended in 2011, and the series will be discontinued on January 1, 2021, one year after the Python 2 sunsetting date. At some point after that, the 'beautifulsoup' pip package will be updated to a recent version of Beautiful Soup. This will free up the 'beautifulsoup' package name to be used by a more recent release.

If you're relying on version 3 of Beautiful Soup, you really ought to port your code to Python 3. A relatively small part of this work will be migrating your Beautiful Soup code to Beautiful Soup 4.
