Scraper for news articles using Rcrawler

Providing R code to scrape news paper articles from the web archive. As an example, the script runs on faz.net news articles from 2018. Written with easy to read R code and outputs a tibble including all news articles and the accompanying meta data. Full scaling to other news papers is not easily possible, since the HTML tags used to container the articles differ heavily between the newspapers.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
