What is cloudflare-scrape?
The process of extracting data from the output of another program is referred to as “data scraping,” and it is a specific method. Data scraping is the most important component of web scraping, which refers to the process of gleaning useful information from a website.
It is easy to understand why businesses and other organizations would prefer it not to happen when their content is illegally downloaded or reused by unauthorized parties. As a consequence of this, several different content protective measures are currently available to stop web scraping. For example, Cloudflare uses Cloudflare Bot Management to recognize malicious bots that scrape data from websites.
However, if you are searching for a way to bypass the anti-bot page that Cloudflare has, the specialists here have a solution for you.
How to bypass Cloudflare’s anti-bot page?
1. Run the following command:
pip install cfscrape
We also have the option to upgrade using this command:
pip install -U cfscrape
2. After that, with the following command, see if our machine has Node:
If not, we can install it as follows:
If you’re using Ubuntu 18.04 or higher
apt-get install nodejs
brew install node
By calling the create_scraper() function, we can quickly use cloudflare-scrape. Moreover, it can use in the same way that Requests are. To put it another way, we’ll call scraper. get() or requests are two options. Instead of request,get(), or requests. post().
Furthermore, if we already have a Request session open, we can take the following steps:
session = requests.session() session.headers = ... scraper = cfscrape.create_scraper(sess=session)
We can recover the cookies using cfscrape.get_tokens(), as per our Technical Support Team. Furthermore, we can use cfscrape.get_cookie_string() to get the entire cookie HTTP header.
