Photon is a Python library for web scraping. It is designed to be lightweight and fast, and can be used to extract data from websites and web pages. Photon can extract the following data while crawling:

  • URLs (in-scope & out-of-scope)
  • URLs with parameters (example.com/gallery.php?id=2)
  • Intel (emails, social media accounts, amazon buckets etc.)
  • Files (pdf, png, xml etc.)
  • Secret keys (auth/API keys & hashes)
  • JavaScript files & Endpoints present in them
  • Strings matching custom regex pattern
  • Subdomains & DNS related data

The extracted information is saved in an organized manner or can be exported as json.

Example Use


// This example extracts all quotes from quotes.toscrape.com and exports to JSON file.
func main() {
    geziyor.NewGeziyor(&geziyor.Options{
        StartURLs: []string{"http://quotes.toscrape.com/"},
        ParseFunc: quotesParse,
        Exporters: []export.Exporter{&export.JSON{}},
    }).Start()
}

func quotesParse(g *geziyor.Geziyor, r *client.Response) {
    r.HTMLDoc.Find("div.quote").Each(func(i int, s *goquery.Selection) {
        g.Exports <- map[string]interface{}{
            "text":   s.Find("span.text").Text(),
            "author": s.Find("small.author").Text(),
        }
    })
    if href, ok := r.HTMLDoc.Find("li.next > a").Attr("href"); ok {
        g.Get(r.JoinURL(href), quotesParse)
    }
}
from photon import Photon

#Create a new Photon instance
ph = Photon()

#Extract data from a specific element of the website
url = "https://www.example.com"
selector = "div.main"
data = ph.get_data(url, selector)

#Print the extracted data
print(data)


#Extract data from multiple websites asynchronously
urls = ["https://www.example1.com", "https://www.example2.com"]
data = ph.get_data_async(urls)
