Python web scraping and importing modules
Deacon_Cronin (67)

Hi, I have been wanting to try web scraping with Python and most of the guides I find require two modules called "beautiful soup" and "requests" and I am not sure how to import these modules. Simply using the import command does not work. I can find requests on the import browser (on this website, not sure if it's the right one: but I cannot find beautiful soup on the browser or using the import command. Any help is appreciated!

@heyitsmarcus Thank you very much for the response! I suppose I'm just blind and unable to find things. Thank you! Edit: Actually I'm still having some problems. Importing requests is fine, but I can't find the actual name to import for beautifulsoup. I tried beautifulsoup4 but it doesn't work.
