Tool for General Purpose Web Scraping and Crawling

Project description

“scrawler” = “scraper” + “crawler”

Provides functionality for the automatic collection of website data (web scraping) and following links to map an entire domain (crawling). It can handle these tasks individually, or process several websites/domains in parallel using asyncio and multithreading.

This project was initially developed while working at the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research. Many thanks for the opportunity and support!
