Recent Works [Python] – News Web Crawler

I have a request to crawl some news website and make some analytic tool with those data. Before that, my client (Mediawave) use Google Api for searching News Data, but now, that API is closed. So, the only way to get those data is “crawl” to news provider. In my Case (Indonesian News), just crawling 3 News Provider,, and All were made using Python. Feel free to ask me if you want to see it in real Action.

Library I used :

  1. Feedparser (Parse RSS Feed)
  2. Scrapy (Crawling using XPath)
  3. Twisted (it’s needed for Scrapy and automatic installed using pip / easy_install)
  4. MySQLdb (Library to connecting Mysql and Python)
  5. Django framework (GUI web based)
  6. Highcharts (Charting library)

And this is some screenshoot of them (open in new tab for higher resolution) :
