5 Web Scraping tools

Outwit Hub

The Hub is the very first tool based on the OutWit platform. In a single interface, it gathers a large series of recognition and extraction features to ease your Web searches and organize your collections, as we believe no other tool ever has. With or without programming or technical knowledge, you can create automatic agents to gather and format the information you seek.

Rcrawler is an R package for web crawling websites and extracting structured data which can be used for a wide range of useful applications, like web mining, text mining, web content mining, and web structure mining. So what is the difference between Rcrawler and rvest : rvest extracts data from one specific page by navigating through selectors. However, Rcrawler automatically traverses and parse all web pages of a website, and extract all data you need from them at once with a single command. For example collect all published posts on a blog, or extract all products on a shopping website, or gathering comments, reviews for your opinion mining studies.
