Scrape websites visually.
To begin, you simply need to create a template by clicking the elements on pages you would like to scrape, and Portia will create a spider to scrape similar pages from the website.
For example, the following video demonstrates how Portia can be used to build a spider for allrecipes.com:
Portia is particularly useful if you need to crawl paginated listings. These are results that are spread across multiple pages - a common feature of most e-commerce sites. The crawler can be adjusted to avoid visiting unnecessary pages by using the target categories as the start URL and altering follow patterns. As a result, Portia helps you extract data much more efficiently compared to other scrapers that require you to crawl unrelated pages.
