We have recently started letting more users into the private beta for our Automatic Extraction. We're receiving a lot of applications following the shutdown of Needlebase and we're increasing our capacity to accommodate these users.

Natalia made a screencast to help our new users get started:

It's also a great introduction to what this service can do.

We released slybot as an open source integration of the scrapely extraction library and the scrapy framework. This is the core technology behind the autoscraping service and we will make it easy to export autoscraping spiders from Scrapinghub  and run them completely with slybot - allowing our users to have the flexibility and freedom provided by open source.
