Quote scraper from brainyquote


#1

Hey! I am planning to get a list of quotes from brainyquote, but it takes a lot just to copy paste into a word file. Does anyone knows any scraper/fetcher/script/software that could scrape all quotes from brainyquote in categories or by keywords? I have seen some of them, but it is only for python, but I don’t know how to use it and it is so complicated.

Thank you :slight_smile:

You can try to compile your python codes into an .exe software, would be great if you share it with us too :kissing_heart: :joy:
Another solution : use iMacros, or Webscraper for chrome.
Cheers

Try import.io
It has a free trial for scraping 500 urls.

We used Data Miner for scrapping quotes from brainyquote. It’s a Google extension, super easy to use and no coding required. Send me a DM and I’ll give you the recipe for the site.

You can have a huge quantity but some manual hand picking is still needed after that
