Project Description

I would like to have a simple program to extract data from a Chinese website and then output to an excel file.

For example, in a traditional online shop, the product list contains several product information like product name, price, etc. I would like to extract those data and export to an excel file. I guess it's simply to send a GET request and return the html source codes and then use sort of string functions to extract the data to excel.

Bear in mind that the target website is a Chinese one. Please be sure that you can handle the Chinese character strings.

There are around 20 categories, but same data fields. So I will need an excel with 20 spreadsheets for the 20 categories.
