    Scrapy vs Kimono opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    All the infrastructure bits that come with it if you need. Its pretty much impossible to do a significant crawl all by yourself (proxy management hell), so being able to get things working first and then lean on the backend infrastructure the scrapy guys have is a major relief.

    Portia vs Kimono opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Portia is a great alternative to Kimono.

    I've tried portia for the last couple of days and seems like a good replacement.

    Visual scrapers are nifty, but none of them can get you very deep into a complex site or multi-site crawl (gets frustrating really fast). So being able to use portia where it works, and then turn to the related but much deeper things like scrapy within the same infrastructure is a huuuuge bonus.

    ParseHub is much better at getting websites from complicated sites. Kimono was great for something simple, but I found ParseHub to be a more powerful and flexible web scraper.
