Whether your targeting data on a single page or multiple, Scrapy can handle the job. No matter if the data is within a list, you can scrape specific patterns right out of the list. Building up your specific Scrapy job isn't a difficult task.
Scrapy is a Python library. If you're familiar with Python, XPath or CSS, you'll feel right at home using Scrapy.
