Brief excursion to .CSS selectors. How it works and why it is needed.
Data extraction in our application is based on .CSS selectors (and also on X-path, but this is secondary). In general, .CSS-selectors are the basis for data scraping in almost any application (both we and many competitors). If you want to extract data, you will somehow need basic knowledge in .CSS-selectors. For good or bad – we do not know, but without it, it will be very difficult for you to use almost any scraper.
Hundreds of articles have been written on the subject of .CSS selectors, and there is also one on our website, and we recommend you to read it.
I need the program codes – I want to make my own scraper!
We believe that data scraping is a complex task. Not always even the best program can solve all the tasks of extracting information from websites. That’s why we stick to the following architecture of our project:
The core of our scraper is packed in the .NET library. The name of this library is ExcavatorSharp. You can find it at the following link. The source codes of this library are closed and you cannot get them. However, you can download the finished library as a .dll assembly and use it according to the technical documentation. You have to pay a fee to use the library.
The program codes of our interface are open – you can request them from us, or download them from codester / codecanyon. As a bonus, when you buy a project on codester / codecanyon, you get a key for 2 years complete with the source codes of the interface. You can use these codes to make your own data scraper.
Your program is not working! I found the bug!
Please let us know. Please use the feedback form.
Where can I read about all the features of the program? Do you have instructions?
