Scraping Data From Wikipedia

Web Scraping Data For Hollywood Actors/Actresses Info

A friend of mine and I were discussing about the divorce rate/trends of Hollywood actors. Basically she was claiming that most of the actors have multiple wives and have gone through divorce in Hollywood. I was not so much in agreement and so came this project.

I created a project using Scrapy, a web scraping framework in Python to browse through each actors/actresses wiki link and look up info about their marital statuses.

Just for fun only 🙂

Here’s the link to the project codes if anyone else is interested in scraping and getting similar data from wikipedia.

Git

Do let me know if you are interested and need help in running the scripts.
