Python SDK for Crawlab

Project description

Crawlab SDK for Python

中文 | English

The SDK for Python contains two parts:

  1. CLI Tool
  2. Utility Tools

CLI Tool

The CLI Tool is mainly designed for those who are more comfortable using command line tools to interact with Crawlab.

The installation of the CLI Tool is simple:

pip install crawlab-sdk

Then, you can use the crawlab command in the command prompt to action with Crawlab.

Check the help document below, or you can refer to the official documentation (Chinese).

crawlab --help

Utility Tools

Utility tools mainly provide some helper methods to make it easier for you to integrate your spiders into Crawlab, e.g. saving results.

Below are integration methods of Scrapy and general Python spiders with Crawlab.

⚠️Note: make sure you have already installed crawlab-sdk using pip.

Scrapy Integration

In in your Scrapy project, find the variable named ITEM_PIPELINES (a dict variable). Add content below.

    'crawlab.pipelines.CrawlabMongoPipeline': 888,

Then, start the Scrapy spider. After it's done, you should be able to see scraped results in Task Detail -> Result

General Python Spider Integration

Please add below content to your spider files to save results.

# import result saving method
from crawlab import save_item

# this is a result record, must be dict type
result = {'name': 'crawlab'}

# call result saving method

Then, start the spider. After it's done, you should be able to see scraped results in Task Detail -> Result
