 Extracting all the links on a website
I am trying to build a web crawler to extract all the links on a webpage. I have created 2 python files. (class: and object: When I run the script there is an error shows up. I am unable to find the error. Help me to solve this.

Source code
import requests
import re
import urllib.parse

class Scanner:
    def __init__(self, url):
        self.target_url = url
        self.target_links = []

    def extract_links_from(self, url):
        response = requests.get(url)
        return re.findall('"((http|ftp)s?://.*?)"', response.content.decode('utf-8'))

    def crawl(self, url=None):
        if url == None:
            url = self.target_url
        href_links = self.extract_links_from(url)
        for link in href_links:
            link = urllib.parse.urljoin(url, link)

            if '#' in link:
                link = link.split("#")[0]

            if self.target_url in link and link not in self.target_links:
import scanner

target_url = "http://localhost/DVWA/"
vul_scanner = scanner.Scanner(target_url)
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:/xampp/htdocs/WebVIM/", line 5, in <module> vul_scanner.crawl(target_url) File "C:\xampp\htdocs\WebVIM\", line 19, in crawl link = urllib.parse.urljoin(url, link) File "C:\Users\HouseMoNaRa\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37-32\lib\urllib\", line 487, in urljoin base, url, _coerce_result = _coerce_args(base, url) File "C:\Users\HouseMoNaRa\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37-32\lib\urllib\", line 120, in _coerce_args raise TypeError("Cannot mix str and non-str arguments") TypeError: Cannot mix str and non-str arguments

Please post all code, output and errors (in it's entirety) between their respective tags. I did it for you this time, Here are instructions on how to do it yourself next time.
Maybe replace line 19 with this:
link = urllib.parse.urljoin(str(url), str(link))
That's where the problem hits, but that may not be where it starts. If that doesn't work you will need to print the url and the link to see what's going in and breaking it.
