in thread Web scraping toolkit?
I think that App::scrape may turn out to be insufficient, not covering some edge cases that needs handling. But again - thats my general worry, not having tried any of the scraping modules yet (the same goes for Web::Scraper and Scrappy).
WWW::Mechanize::Firefox looks very promising, and implementing the few extra features that Scrapie has (logging and such) shouldn't be a problem. The real drawback lies in having to rely on firefox (or some similar component) in development and production.
I'll go back to the drawing board and see what to do. Thanks for the pointers.
