Screen scraping and web crawling framework

Project description

Pomp is a screen scraping and web crawling framework. Pomp is inspired by and similar to Scrapy, but has a simpler implementation that lacks the hard Twisted dependency.


  • Pure python

  • Only one dependency for Python 2.x - concurrent.futures (backport of package for Python 2.x)

  • Supports one file applications; Pomps doesn’t force a specific project layout or other restrictions.

  • Pomp is a meta framework like Paste: you may use it to create your own scraping framework.

  • Extensible networking: you may use any sync or async method.

  • No parsing libraries in the core; use you preferred approach.

  • Pomp instances may be distributed and are designed to work with an external queue.

Pomp makes no attempt to accomodate:

  • redirects

  • proxies

  • caching

  • database integration

  • cookies

  • authentication

  • etc.

If you want proxies, redirects, or similar, you may use the excellent requests library as the Pomp downloader.
