Python Regular Expressions

A Little Guide

About the Book

Python + Regex?

Many of you do not find this combination easy, which partly happens because of the Python's obfuscated regex documentation too! In this course, to make your life easy, we have used some real-world examples. The goals are: - Teach you how to use the Python regular expressions (re) module and relevant functions by running interactive examples.

Projects included:

  • Project 2: Parsing data from a HTML file with Python and REGEX
  • Project 3: PDF scraping in Python + REGEX
  • Project 4: Web scraping in Python + REGEX
  • Project 5: Amazon web crawling in Python + REGEX

This is a short course, should be pretty quick and easy to complete. However, it assumes that you have basic Python skills (see the other Python courses on this platform).

This book serves three simple goals:

  • Teach you how to use the Python regular expressions (re) module and relevant functions by running examples;
  • Educate you to deal with projects with real world data examples (e.g., pdf and web scraping, more coming soon!);
  • Challenge you with coding exercises and quizzes; and

This book should be pretty quick and easy to complete. However, it assumes that you have basic Python skills (see the other Python books on this platform).
