Scrapy is an open source python framework built specifically for web scraping by Zyte co-founders Pablo Hoffman and Shane Evans. Out of the box, Scrapy spiders are designed to download HTML, parse and process the data and save it in either CSV, JSON or XML file formats.
Scrapy boasts a wide range of built-in extensions and middlewares designed for handling cookies and sessions as well as HTTP features like compression, authentication, caching, user-agents, robots.txt and crawl depth restriction. It is also very easy to extend through the development of custom middlewares or pipelines to your web scraping projects which can give you the specific functionality you require.
