web-scraper

A simple script that scrapes a website, extracting texts in a CSV file with the format below, and saving images.

Page Tag Text Link Image
page path element tag (h{1,6}, a, p, etc) text content link url (if any) image address (if any)

Usage

First, install dependencies (python3):

pip install -r requirements

Then create a file containing urls of the websites you want to scrape, one line for each website, for example (I'll call this file test_websites):

https://theread.me
https://theguardian.com

Now you are ready to execute the script:

python index.py test_websites
                # ^ path to your file

After the script is done with it's job, you can find the results in results/<website_hostname> folder.

To see available options, try python index.py -h.
