This repository contains the source code the example website used throughout the book Web Scraping with Python, published by Packt Publishing. When run locally the app will not block IP's that download faster than the thresholds specified in models/3_cache.db, which means you can test your crawler faster.
In the shell the installation instructions are as follows:
# first download web2py
# now download the app
git clone email@example.com:richardpenman/wswp_places.git places
# now start the web2py server with a password for the admin interface
python web2py.py --password=<password>
The places app can now be accessed in your web browser at http://127.0.0.1:8000/places.
