HTML scraper with templates

Project Description
# weakscraper
HTML scraper with templates

## Description

Most HTML pages are generated using templates. Why not use templates too for scraping HTML pages? As for a template language, let's use HTML plus a few keywords. That way, the workflow with `weakscraper` is the following :
* Get the source of a HTML page you want to scrap.
* Using a few keywords, edit the HTML to select which information is of interest and which parts to discard.
* If complicated processing is required, write additional callbacks.
* Run `weakscraper` on the template and on the HTML.


## Pros
* Observes the [rule of least power](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_least_power). A declarative language helps to focus on *what* to keep. *How* the information is scrapped is the job of the library.
