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

3 Best Methods to Read Files in Python

Read file line by line

Python supports three specific methods to read files- read, readline, readlines. All these you use on files. Each has its unique purpose. Below are the best examples.

3 Methods to read file

  1. read
  2. readline
  3. readlines

Method-1: read

It reads records from file in sequence.

Here, file.txt is sample file with single row.



file_object.read(2) ==> you will get 'ab'

file_object.read(4)  ===> you will get 'cdef'

Here, the multiple read methods read the data in sequence. The read(x) method will read only the number of characters that mentioned in the read method. Again, if you give multiple read methods then it will read in sequence.

Method-2: readline

It reads the file line by line.

Here, file.txt is a file with single row.



file_object.readline() ==> you will get 'abcdefghijk'

Here, it reads the file line by line.

Method-3: readlines

It reads all the records at a time.

Here, file.txt is a file with two rows.



file_object.readlines() ==> you will get both the lines.


Here, it reads all the lines at a time.
