Web Scraping with QWebView?



  • I 'm trying to do web Scraping (=get data from a web page) using QWebView.
    Is this the right way to go or maybe I 'd better use something else?

    Hi
    I would try python.
    So many have done it that it was just copy & paste for me and it was working
    https://www.analyticsvidhya.com/blog/2015/10/beginner-guide-web-scraping-beautiful-soup-python/
    http://python-guide-pt-br.readthedocs.io/en/latest/scenarios/scrape/
    (just examples. been while)

    But ofc it depends on what the project really is.



  • I had already done it in python, but I thought of making it in Qt c++ for a more 'professional' result.
    But I 'll follow your suggestion, I 'll continue in python, thanks!

    Well normally it would be for performance reasons to use c++ but unless you use c++ lib for
    Scraping , i would say python wins for fast get up and running.
