A simple python web scraper

Project description

Python Scraper
==============

A simple web scraper made in python with love:

Install with pip:
-----------------

.. code:: sh

pip install simplescraper


Usage:
------

Make a simple call to a web page, lets call 'www.test.com'

.. code:: python

from simplescraper import SimpleScraper

test = SimpleScraper()
result = test.get_scraped_data('www.test.com')
print result

output:
~~~~~~~

.. code:: javascript

{
url: 'http://www.test.com',
source: 'www.test.com',
image: 'http://www.test.com/some/random/image.png',
title: 'Just a test page'
}

You can also call it without using the 'www' as 'test.com' if the web page has a redirection. If the web page needs the usage of the https protocol to be accessed you can call it as: 'https://www.test.com', this is not mandatory since the scraper checks if the protocol is needed.
