Scraping library to retrieve data from useful pages, such as Amazon wishlists

API

The API to use the library, scrape data and manage spiders is the following:

  • scrape(SPIDER_NAME, URL): scrapes the given URL using the spider referenced on SPIDER_NAME.
  • spiders(): list all spiders found by the library.

Custom Spiders

Using custom spiders is possible, as long as they:

  • They must be implemented as a class, and inherit from BaseSpider.
  • The spider file need to be either on scraper_factory/spiders, or in a custom location, as long as the environment variable $SPIDER_PATH is set to the directory where the spider is located.

Usage example

>>> import scraper_factory as SF
>>> SF.scrape('amazon-wishlist', 'https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/24XY9873RPAYN')
