( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hello all. I am attempting to write a web crawler in Scrappy.

Well, there's your problem!

Even you say It is hard to find examples of a working Scrappy script -- there is a good reason for that, scrappy is too much pee :)

I would not recommend scrappy but Web::Scraper

See WWW::Mechanize, subclass WWW::Scripter::Plugin::JavaScript, WWW::Mechanize::Firefox, Web::Scraper, App::scrape

extracting data from html using xpath

extract data from html with xpath

extract a substring between two emements, its css/xpath time again

creating a web crawler with Mechanize

Super Search for Mechanize/Scripter examples

See Re^5: can't get WWW::Mechanize to sign in on JustAnswer, Re: Mimicking Internet Explorer (IE) via LWP or Mechanize?

Are there any memory-efficient web scrapers?, Get 10,000 web pages fast, Async DNS with LWP
