About the Book

This book is the follow-up of my previous one: "XML processing and website scraping in Java". There I looked at ways and tools to process XML and HTML in Java, did some performace comparisons and introduced some new programming concepts to make things even better.

In this book I take a closer look at website scraping with the two tools used nowadays: BeautifulSoup and Scrapy.

I create the sample application from the Java book -- now in Python, use the two tools for parsing, show examples how to export CSV files in Python.

As a bonus I will compare the two tools for their runtime, try to tweak where possible and I will give a quick introduction on plotting the runtimes as charts.

Until it is finished, you can buy the book for a discounted price. The final book will be around $35.

I will write about the following topics in this book:

  • BeautifulSoup
  • Scrapy
  • Performance comparison
  • Plotting in Python
  • Functional programming with Python
  • Parallel code execution with Python
  • Sample application to gather Amazon data
  • Other real-life projects (source code coming soon into the package)
  • Update for Scrapy's release and Python 3 (coming soon)
