Web Scraping Repl.it
Has anyone successfuly web scraped repl.it to get the code? When I tried to scrape one of my programs, all I got was this message:
Not sure what to do? Run some examples (start typing to dismiss)
All help appreciated!
You can get the html of replit using xpath
from lxml import html from request import get replit_page = get('https://repl.it/talk/ask?order=new') #I used replit's ask page print(replit_page.text) #This will print out the html replit_html = html.fromstring(replit_page.content) print(replit_html.xpath('/html/body/div/div/div/div/div/div/h1/text()')) #That will give you, "Online Music Hackathon," text
Heres a tutorial on how to web scrape with xpath in python https://docs.python-guide.org/scenarios/scrape/
Hope this helped (:
I don't think anyone has ever tried, and I don't think repl.it was made for getting code information from web scraping.
