Web-crawling framework. More information: <>.

  • Create a project:
    scrapy startproject project_name
  • Create a spider (in project directory):
    scrapy genspider spider_name website_domain
  • Edit spider (in project directory):
    scrapy edit spider_name
  • Run spider (in project directory):
    scrapy crawl spider_name
  • Fetch a webpage as Scrapy sees it and print the source to `stdout`:
    scrapy fetch url
  • Open a webpage in the default browser as Scrapy sees it (disable JavaScript for extra fidelity):
    scrapy view url
  • Open Scrapy shell for URL, which allows interaction with the page source in a Python shell (or IPython if available):
    scrapy shell url
