I keep seeing the double-p in scrapper and think, "Like, a scrappy fighter?" Is it possible you intended to call the method scraper?


Cool, I like the color scheme of your text editor...animus, I gonna put attention to th is librarie...animus


Great Post Juan!

If you think this is interesting, checkout Async for HTTP requests, I bet it will blow your mind! πŸ¦„


Nice, I see you implemented it in Nim eheh!

Have you tried httpx's async support as well?
