DOM Traversing and Scraping using GraphQL

Project description

GDOM is the next generation of web-parsing, powered by GraphQL syntax and the Graphene framework.

Install it typing in your console:

pip install gdom

DEMO: Try GDOM online

Usage

You can either do gdom --test to start a test server for testing queries or

gdom QUERY_FILE

This command will write in the standard output (or other output if specified via --output) the resulting JSON.

Your QUERY_FILE could look similar to this:

{
  page(url:"http://news.ycombinator.com") {
    items: query(selector:"tr.athing") {
      rank: text(selector:"td span.rank")
      title: text(selector:"td.title a")
      sitebit: text(selector:"span.comhead a")
      url: attr(selector:"td.title a", name:"href")
      attrs: next {
         score: text(selector:"span.score")
         user: text(selector:"a:eq(0)")
         comments: text(selector:"a:eq(2)")
      }
    }
  }
}

Advanced usage

If you want to generalize your gdom query to any page, just rewrite your query file adding the $page var. So should look to something like this:

query ($page: String) {
  page(url:$page) {
    # ...
  }
}

And then, query it like:

gdom QUERY_FILE http://news.ycombinator.com
