Scrapy Web Spider

I can provide you with a basic example of how to use Scrapy, a popular web scraping framework, to scrape data from a website. Please note that you should always scrape websites responsibly and respect their terms of service. Here's a simple Scrapy spider that scrapes quotes from

First, you'll need to install Scrapy if you haven't already. You can do this using pip:

pip install scrapy

Next, create a new Scrapy project:

scrapy startproject quotes_scraper

Now, create a spider to scrape quotes. Create a Python file called inside the quotes_scraper/quotes_scraper/spiders/ directory. Here's the code for the spider:

import scrapy

class QuotesSpider(scrapy.Spider):
    name = "quotes"
    start_urls = [

    def parse(self, response):
        for quote in response.css('div.quote'):
            yield {
                'text': quote.css('span.text::text').get(),
                'author': quote.css('span small::text').get(),

        next_page = response.css(' a::attr(href)').get()
        if next_page is not None:
            yield response.follow(next_page, self.parse)

In this example, we've defined a spider named "quotes" that starts by visiting the first page of It then extracts the text and author of each quote on the page and follows the link to the next page if it exists.

Now, you can run the spider to scrape the data:

scrapy crawl quotes

Scrapy will start crawling the website, and the scraped data will be printed to the console.

Remember to adapt this example to your specific scraping needs and target websites. Additionally, always ensure that your web scraping activities comply with the website's terms of service and the applicable legal regulations.
