A little help with my first project :)

Hi everybody,


my name is Donato and I am an Italian Ph.D. student in management. Nice to meet all of you!


I am new to coding, and for my dissertation, I need to collect data from Etsy. I found a scraping project on GitHub which is basically what I am looking for ( I have tried to run the code, but I get some errors (I am using Idle for mac). 


I would like to kindly ask you whether someone can help me with this. For instance, is there any specific order I need to follow when opening the different .py files?

I just need to understand how I run the code on my computer, any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you all,

Re: A little help with my first project :)

I think this isn't something you run via IDLE?


The readme states usage is:

scrapy crawl findSellers

I.e. you need to have installed scrapy, set your current directory in a command window to the "etsy" folder, and execute the above command line. There isn't any main() in any of the python files, so you can't execute any of them.


Please follow-up to let us know how you made out. For good karma, mark a reply as the answer if it helped!
