This is part 1 of my selenium exploration.
- Part I: Selenium Basics (this article)
- Part II: Running Headless on a Server
- Part III: Handling Errors and Timeouts
At the New Mexico GNU & Linux User Group, currently meeting virtually on Jitsi, someone expressed interest in scraping websites. Since I do quite a bit of scraping, I offered to give a tutorial on scraping with the Python module BeautifulSoup.
"What about selenium?" he asked. Sorry, I said, I've never needed selenium enough to figure it out.
But then a week later, I found I did have a need.
