The Scrapy tutorial part IV: Web Scraping Follow Pagination Links

Developed by Pablo Hoffman and Shane Evans, Scrapy is an open-source python framework built specifically for web data extraction. With Scrapy spiders, you are able to download HTML, parse and process the data and save it in either CSV, JSON or XML file formats.

In our first tutorials, we've focussed on how to extract data from a website. In this video, we'll show you how to crawl a website using Scrapy.

After watching this, you will know:

  • How to find links in a page
  • How to create requests to other pages

If you haven't yet, we recommend you to first watch part I, part II and part III of our tutorial series.
