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

How to Unpack a List into Variables Quickly in Python

Here are two examples to unpack a list in Python. You can do it easily by using splat operator. The asterisk in python is called a Splat operator. Here are two splat operators - Single and Double. Below, you will find examples.

1. Single splat operator

Consider, for example, this code:
abc = [1,2,3,4]

Here the output will be: [1, 2, 3, 4]

What if you didn't want the list output in list format? What if all you wanted was the list of values to be written to the output console? You could write them using a loop and one of the output functions, but Python prefers an easier way:

print(*abc) 1 2 3 4

Unpack List Splat Operators

2. Double splat operator

Here, I have written a function:

def func(x,y,z): 
      return x + y + z


It will show '6' as output. Since, I have assigned values for x,y, and z in a dictionary. So by using a double splat operator you assign values to the function.

d = { 
'x': 1, 
'y': 2, 
'z': 3
