Welcome to dryscrape’s documentation!

dryscrape is a lightweight web scraping library for Python. It uses a headless Webkit instance to evaluate Javascript on the visited pages. This enables painless scraping of plain web pages as well as Javascript-heavy “Web 2.0” applications like Facebook.

It is built on the shoulders of capybara-webkit‘s webkit-server. A big thanks goes to thoughtbot, inc. for building this excellent piece of software!
