  • Douyin_TikTok_Download_API


    Project mention: TikTok video scraper | /r/webscraping | 2023-05-23

    At the moment I am working on a web scraper for TikTok. At the moment, I am able to retrieve data about the first 16 videos from a channel. The way I achieved this was to make requests to an unofficial API My problem is that the requirements for this project do not allow me to use any package that would extract data from TikTok. I would like to ask you all, how should I go about this task. Already tried getting data from the HTML, but is not sufficient since most of it is not displayed when I use requests.get(URL). Could you please recommend some repositories that could help or some way of extracting the data? Thank you!

    The feature list answers that question pretty well:

    Basically: you could implement all of this on top of BeautifulSoup - polite crawling policies, sitemap and feed parsing, URL de-duplication, parallel processing, download queues, heuristics for extracting just the main article content, metadata extraction, language detection... but it would require writing an enormous amount of extra code.
