Wombat is a Ruby gem that makes it easy to scrape websites and extract structured data from HTML pages. It is built on top of Nokogiri, a popular Ruby gem for parsing and searching HTML and XML documents, and it provides a simple and intuitive API for defining and running web scraping operations.

One of the main features of Wombat is its ability to extract structured data from HTML pages using a simple, CSS-like syntax. It allows you to define a set of rules for extracting data from a page, and then automatically applies those rules to the page's HTML to extract the desired data. This makes it easy to extract data from even complex and dynamic pages, without having to write a lot of custom code.

In addition to its data extraction capabilities, Wombat also provides a variety of other features that can simplify the web scraping process. It can automatically follow links and scrape multiple pages, it can handle pagination and AJAX requests, and it can handle cookies and authentication. It also provides a built-in support for parallelism and queueing to speed up the scraping process.

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)
    }
}
require 'wombat'

Wombat.crawl do
  base_url "https://www.github.com"
  path "/"

  headline xpath: "//h1"
  subheading css: "p.alt-lead"
