Sengi Web Crawler

A web crawler using Ruby and Redis.

Install

First, run:

gem install rake bundler nokogiri hiredis
make

Setup

Redis is used to store everything. So it's always be needed to run Sengi.

Start Redis:

./bin/redis

Start Resque -- Scheduler and Worker:

./bin/resque_scheduler_start
./bin/resque_crawler_start

To get a Resque web dashboard at http://localhost:8282, run:

./bin/resque_server

Init Sengi. This sets default variables to Redis and a blacklist of the deepweb.

RUBYOPT=-rbundler/setup ruby ./bin/config --init

Usage

Queue

To queue a URL to be crawled, run:

RUBYOPT=-rbundler/setup ruby ./bin/crawler -q http://example.com

Relative Links Only

To crawl only relative links on example.com:

RUBYOPT=-rbundler/setup ruby ./bin/crawler -r http://example.com

Serial

Crawl only one URL at a time. The latest datetime will be stored into Redis key urls:schedule:last. A new URL to crawl will be scheduled for a new datetime calculated by urls:schedule:last + url_delay. Where url_delay is the number of seconds between the scheduled URLs.

RUBYOPT=-rbundler/setup ruby ./bin/crawler -s http://example.com
