Recipe scrapers

Build Status Coverage Status

A simple web scraping tool for recipe sites I use in a project of mine that makes sense to live as a separate package. No Python 2 support.

pip install git+git://github.com/hhursev/recipe-scrapers.git

then:

from recipe_scrapers import scrape_me

# give the url as a string, it can be url from any site listed below
scraper = scrape_me('http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Apple-Cake-Iv/Detail.aspx')

scraper.title()
scraper.total_time()
scraper.ingredients()
scraper.instructions()
scraper.links()

Note: scraper.links() returns a dictionary object containing all of the tag attributes. The attribute names are the dictionary keys.

Contribute

Part of the reason I want this open sourced is because if a site makes a design change, the scraper for it should be modified.

If you spot a design change (or something else) that makes the scrapers unable to work for the given site - please fire an issue asap.

If you are programmer PRs with fixes are warmly welcomed and acknowledged with a virtual beer 🍺.

Scrapers available for:

If you want a scraper for a new site added

  • Open an Issue providing us the site name, as well as a recipe link from it.
  • If you are a developer and want to code the scraper on your own, this is a wonderful example of how to do it.
