Web Scraping With Simple Scraper

By the end of this tutorial, you will have created a web scraper in Simple Scraper, that will allow you to scrape data from a website (Quotes To Scrape).

Join 1,000+ readers and get my weekly newsletter. It's a minute read. I share work that I have shipped, work that has piqued my curiosity, and a haiku poem I have written.

1. Setting Up Your Web Scraper

Go-to Quotes To Scrape.

Open Simple Scraper, and click the plus (+) sign.

First, you’ll want to scrape the quotes: select a quote. Everything which gets highlighted is what’ll get extracted. Name this data, ‘Quote’. Then, click the tick to set it for when you run the scraper.

Second, you’ll want to scrape the author of each quote. Again, click the plus (+) sign. Then, select the author of a quote. Everything which gets highlighted is what’ll get extracted. Name this data, ‘Author’. And, click the tick to set it for when you run the scraper.

2. Running Your Web Scraper

To run your scraper, click ‘View Results’.

Once the web scraper has run, Simple Scraper will return the selected data. It will allow you to view that data in a table or as a JSON file. And, you will have the option of downloading the data as either a CSV file or JSON.
