Project description

Scrapy Accessory


pip install scrapy-accessory



Add random user-agent to requests.

In add

# USER_AGENT_LIST_FILE = 'path-to-files'

    'scrapy_accessory.middlewares.RandomUserAgentDownloadMiddleware': 200,

You can use either USER_AGENT_LIST_FILE or USER_AGENT_LIST to configure user-agents. USER_AGENT_LIST_FILE points to a text file containing one user-agent per line. USER_AGENT_LIST is a list or tuple of user-agents.


Add http or https proxy for requests.

In add

PROXY_ENABLED = True  # True to use proxy, default is False
# PROXY_HOST = 'localhost:8080'  # default static proxy, format: <ip>:<port>, default empty
PROXY_CACHE = 'redis://localhost:6379/0'  # cache for proxy, use redis://<host>:<port>/<db> to use redis cache, default dict in memory
PROXY_TTL = 30 # proxy cache ttl in seconds, default 30s
CHANGE_PROXY_STATUS = [429]  # a list of status codes that force to change proxy if received, default [429]

Default is a static proxy configured in, you can add dynamic proxy from API or others. Just need to extend the ProxyDownloadMiddleware class and implement the generate_proxy method.


class DynamicProxyDownloadMiddleware(ProxyDownloadMiddleware):

    api = 'http://api-to-get-proxy-ip'

    def generate_proxy(self):
        res = requests.get(self.api)
        if res.status_code < 300:
            return res.text  # return format <ip>:<port>
        return None
