As you would know, I scrape a lot of web pages as a Data Archivist at DataMeet. I usually use BS4 for this, and it’s beautiful, simple, and works. But often don’t want to write a python script to do that, and I need a simple tool to get data out of HTML.
I like to read a stanza of Vachana every day, and I generally visit Vachana Sanchaya to do that. They have a widget ಇಂದಿನ ವಚನ aka Today’s Vachana. Which picks a random(?) Vachana and shows it to you on their home page. But then its not fun to visit the site everyday. So I wrote a script so it appears on my Desktop.
I am sorry for being late. 2021 has not been an easy year, personally. With so many things going around me, I couldn’t give mind-space or time to work on it. Since this is close to my heart, I couldn’t decide without spending time on it. That said, we have the results now.
I didn’t think I liked him so much. I am 💔.
We have made updates to DataMeet’s COVID19 dataset to include new columns. Also, we have added SQLite DB. In case you like SQLing.
