Engineer Man has a great video demonstrating the power of Python and Beautiful Soup when applied to web scraping. Long time readers will know that I have long been a fan of web scraping, often employing in apps. I’ve even written a C# library and a “Screen Scrapers Manifesto” that implored content creators to create APIs and if they didn’t, we’d just grab the data anyways. ūüėČ

Unfortunately, said manifesto was wiped out last year.

In any case, enjoy the video and browse the source code to learn how to be a lean, mean screen scraping machine.
