  • What does the process of web scraping actually look like?

    The hardest part is actually running a web scraper at scale and that's where many people fail. We have all of the working pieces - we can find the products and parse the raw data. Time to scale it up! Best tip here is to start off with caching. Using caching libraries like requests-cache or whatever library equivalent will speed up process significantly.

    And would you be willing to add some example Terraform config? If you wouldn't mind making a PR for that, it could go under the /examples folder.

    Are you configuring TTL on your tables, or using the requests-cache expiration settings (expire_after, etc.), or just caching everything indefinitely? See requests-cache/#363 for a related feature I was considering.

    Hi there, I'm the current maintainer of requests-cache, which is a handy companion for almost any python application that uses the requests library. This was already a well-established project before I came along; it's coming up on its 10-year cake day next April, and credit goes to Roman Haritonov for creating and maintaining it for most of that time.

    That's definitely a good use case for TTL, then. There's an issue for supporting that for Redis here: requests-cache/#361
