As i am trying this out with no data scraping background, it takes quite a while to read through and try the tutorials.
I achieve some successful scrapes on small website.
But what i really want is some data from Shopee page (standard product name, price, description and pictures), eg:
I tried following the tutorial on Amazon:
which leads to many other side tutorials like AJAX loading, XPath, RegEx etc.
(I am not too technical and cant write XPath, RedEx myself, but i try to follow until the parts where Octoparse's tools autogenerate)
Here is where i keep running into problems:
1. i tried using Octoparse's template for Shopee, but it doesnt work and doesnt extract any data.
2. In setting my own task to extract, i managed to extract each product's name, price. But cannot extract the product description
3. I also can't extract ANY product pictures URL. (Thumbnails,actual size picture URL, also cant).
Appreciate if you can give some advice.
