Scraping Website: How to Write a Script in Python

Here's a python script that you can use as a model to scrape a website. Python script The below logic uses BeautifulSoup Package for web scraping. import requests from bs4 import BeautifulSoup url = 'https://www.example.com' response = requests.get(url) soup = BeautifulSoup(response.text, 'html.parser') # Print the title of the webpage print(soup.title.text) # Print all the links in the webpage for link in soup.find_all('a'):     print(link.get('href')) In this script, we first import the Requests and Beautiful Soup libraries. We then define the URL we want to scrape and use the Requests library to send a GET request to that URL. We then pass the response text to Beautiful Soup to parse the HTML contents of the webpage. We then use Beautiful Soup to extract the title of the webpage and print it to the console. We also use a for loop to find all the links in the webpage and print their href attributes to the console. This is just a basic example, but

Python - How to Lookup Dictionary by Key

Here's Python Dictionary that explained how to lookup it using Key. Dictionary in Python is Key/Value pair. It's different from the list. The basic rule to identify; is enclosed in flower brackets ({}). Here's a demo about lookup and how to test it. 

Dictionary = { 'key' : 'value', 'key: value'  }  

Dictionary Lookup


  1. Python Dictionary
  2. Python Lookup
  3. How to check Lookup working or not



my_dict = {'name' : 'srini' , 'salary' : '100000', 'skills' : 'python' }

Here, 'name' is the label.

Then, :

Then, 'srini' -> Value

  • Data is enclosed in flower brackets
  • It's an unordered list
  • You can manipulate data (mutable)
  • You can access the value of a particular key. So, in Python, it's called a Lookup. It's one of the best interview questions.

Lookup Dictionary by Key

Python Lookup (a.k.a Dictionary). You can access data quickly. It's really super-speed. 


The result will be: 'srini'

  • You should use square brackets ([]) to get lookup data
  • Use key-value in square brackets ([]) with a single quote, you will get value

Output from Lookup

I am now adding new value to the Lookup.

>>> my_dict['role'] = 'Manager'

Now, the my_dict will'be :

>>> my_dict = {'name' : 'srini' , 'salary' : '100000', 'skills' : 'python' , 'role' : 'Manager'}

  • The order of assignmenet will not match with actula storing in Python
  • The order of Key/Value storage is taken care by interpreter
