SUMMARY: The purpose of this project is to practice web scraping by gathering specific pieces of information from a website. The web scraping code was written in Python and leveraged the BeautifulSoup module.
INTRODUCTION: A demo website, created by Scrapinghub, lists quotes from famous people. It has many endpoints showing the quotes in different ways, and each endpoint presents a different scraping challenge for practicing web scraping. For this Take4 iteration, the Python script attempts to execute the login form and scrape the Goodreads links off each quote. The Goodreads links appear only after a successful authentication.
