1.3.2 Peripheral functions

In addition, WebMagic projects in several packages, these are some experimental features, and the purpose is to provide some tools to integrate peripheral sample. Because of the limited energy, these packages have not been widely used and tested, recommended way is to download the source code, then modify encounter problems.


Here are some examples of crawlers author written earlier. Because of the limited time, some of these examples use is still the old version of the API, but also because there may be some changes in the structure of the target page is no longer available. To date, been featured examples, see the us.codecraft.webmagic.processor.example webmagic-core package and the webmaigc-core package of us.codecraft.webmagic.example.


WebMagic for crawlers rule scripted some attempts, the goal is to allow developers from the Java language, for simple, rapid development. While emphasizing the shared script.
