  • A simple solution to rotate proxies or how to spin up your own rotation proxy server with Puppeteer and only a few lines of JS code
    I'm currently implementing concurrency conditions at project/proxy/domain/session level in . On each level you can define the maximum number of requests and the delay between two consecutive requests.
  • Web scraping content into postgresql? Scheduling web scrapers into a pipeline with airflow?
    If you're familiar with nodejs give a try. Scraped content can be stored in sqlite, mysql or postgresql. It also supports puppeteer, playwright, cheerio or jsdom for the actual content extraction. No scheduler though.
  • Web Scraping 101 with Python | 2021-02-10
    I'm using this exact strategy to scrape content directly from DOM using APIs like document.querySelectorAll. You can use the same code in both headless browser clients like Puppeteer or Playwright and DOM clients like cheerio or jsdom (assuming you have a wrapper over document API). Depending on the way a web page was fetched (opened in a browser tab or fetched via nodejs http/https requests), ExtractHtmlContentPlugin, ExtractUrlsPlugin use different DOM wrappers (native, cheerio, jsdom) to scrape the content.


  • What is your “I don't care if this succeeds” project? | 2021-02-01 - I've been working (intermittently :) ) on a nodejs or browser extension scraper for the last 3 years, see the other projects under the get-set-fetch umbrella. Putting a lot more effort lately as I really want to do those Alexa top 1 million analysis like top js libraries, certificate authorities and so on. A few weeks back I've posted on Show:HN as you can do basic/intermediate? scraping with it.

    Not capable of handling 1 mil+ pages as it still limited to puppeteer or playwright. Working on adding cheerio/jsdom support right now.
