Scrap2API – Easy scrapping from Excel / LibreOffice

You may want to have in Excel some contents from the Internet. In some case, the basic functionalities of Excel / LibreOffice will be enough to get the data, but in most of the case, you will need more complex processing. So I wrote a simple script that will scrap the content with regular expression, xpath or css selector, and expose the results in a very simple API so that Excel / LibreOffice will be able to use it. 

The script is available on github.com/rpeyron/scrap2api/  with full documentation.

A simple example to get the number of results of a google search with the different methods is provided.

The script is also extensible through plugins, please refer to developer’s documentation.
