Scrapy is a fast high-level screen scraping and web crawling framework, used to crawl websites and extract structured data from their pages. It can be used for a wide range of purposes, from data mining to monitoring and automated testing.
This package provides the scrapy module for Python 2.
The software manager in Linux mint needs updating so as it uses Scrapy 0.18. I'd be able to use this tool if only the scrapy documentation at scrapy.org reffered to the verion mint installs as standard.
