Web Scraping

Data Science 101 : Playing with Scraping in Python

This is a simple illustration of using Pattern Module to scrape web data using Python. We will be scraping the data from imdb for the top TV Series along with their ratings We will be using this link for this: http://www.imdb.com/search/title?count=100&num_votes=5000,&ref_=gnr_tv_hr&sort=user_rating,desc&start=1&title_type=tv_series,mini_series This URL gives a list of top Rated TV Series which have number of votes atleast 5000. The Thing to note in this URL is the “&start=” parameter where we can specify which review should the list begin with.
