  • Using Beautiful Soup to Parse Website Data
import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup, element

request = requests.get("https://www.packtpub.com/product/complete-python-web-course-build-8-python-web-applications-video/9781839215094")
# <span class="price-list__price" itemprop="price" content="6823.99"> ₹6,823.99  </span>
content = request.content
soup = BeautifulSoup(content, "html.parser")
element = soup.find("span", attrs={"itemprop": "price", "class": "price-list__price"})
print (element.text.strip())
  • Using MongoDB with python
from pymongo import MongoClient

client = MongoClient('localhost', 27018)
database = client["yogesh"]
print (database.list_collection_names())
collection = database["posts"]

# Inserts
post = {"name": "Yogesh", "age": 29}
post_id = collection.insert_one(post).inserted_id
# Retrieval
usrs = collection.find({})
for user in usrs:
  • Inserting a new item
    • db.posts.insert({ JSON DATA)})
  • Removing items from mongo
    • b.posts.remove({})
