Script the Web with Weboob
Yes we can use the Web outside of Browsers
Weboob is a python framework for web scraping, providing command-line tools and GUI applications. It supports several types of websites, from video collections to bug trackers, online banking or parcel tracking.
The framework handles many types of website capabilities through various modules. The command-line tools allows scripting easily with several formaters (JSON, CSV...), but we can also use it as a python framework.
Writing modules to support more websites is also very easy with the new Browser2 API.
