How can I retrieve the links of a webpage and copy the url address of the links using Python?
Now we will see solution for issue: retrieve links from web page using python and BeautifulSoup [closed]
Here’s a short snippet using the SoupStrainer class in BeautifulSoup:
import httplib2 from bs4 import BeautifulSoup, SoupStrainer http = httplib2.Http() status, response = http.request('http://www.nytimes.com') for link in BeautifulSoup(response, parse_only=SoupStrainer('a')): if link.has_attr('href'): print(link['href'])
The BeautifulSoup documentation is actually quite good, and covers a number of typical scenarios:
Edit: Note that I used the SoupStrainer class because it’s a bit more efficient (memory and speed wise), if you know what you’re parsing in advance.
