    Project mention: Web-scraping IMDb with R | dev.to | 2021-06-28

    There are many no-code tools for web scraping, like browser plug-ins (e.g. Webscraper) and software (e.g. Parsehub). However, if you need more advanced scraping settings and have basic coding skills, I recommend the Python libraries Beautiful Soup or Selenium, and the R package rvest. The latter is the one I used for scraping IMDb and you can find the commented code on my GitHub.
