Scrapy vs. BeautifulSoup.

You must choose the best scraping tool to mine data effectively. There are many popular scrapers, like ScrapeBox, but a lot of people ask which free Python scraper is better: Scrapy or BeautifulSoup.
To find out, you must first understand that Beautiful Soup only parses and extracts data from HTML files, while Scrapy actually downloads, processes and saves data. Scrapy is very good at automatically following links in a site, no matter what the format of those links is, so you don’t need to predict too many aspects of your operation. In this sense, Beautiful Soup is a content parser, while Scrapy is a full web spider and scraper. BS needs an additional content downloader (like requests) to download those HTML files, first.
