    I've been working on gazpacho [1] for last two years.

    It's a general purpose web scraping library for Python that replaces BeautifulSoup + requests for most projects.

    Just surpassed ~2K downloads every week!

    although I don't follow the need to have what appears to be two completely separate HTML parsing C libraries as dependencies; seeing this in the readme for Modest gives me the shivers because lxml has _seen some shit_

    > Modest is a fast HTML renderer implemented as a pure C99 library with no outside dependencies.

    although its other dep seems much more cognizant about the HTML5 standard, for whatever that's worth: https://github.com/lexbor/lexbor#lexbor
