Selenium Parsing (unable to Parse page after loading)
#1
Im trying to scrape a torrentz url, I get the Page loading html instead of search result html, tried to put sleep time didnt worked out.

anyone knows how to do
import time
from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
import requests

browser = webdriver.Firefox()
browser.get("https://torrentz.eu/")
time.sleep(10)

#class selenium.webdriver.support.expected_conditions.title_contains(Torrent)

search = browser.find_element_by_id('thesearchbox')
search.send_keys('xxxxx')
search.send_keys(Keys.RETURN) # hit return after you enter search text
time.sleep(10)
    
tempurl = browser.current_url
print(tempurl)
tempcont = requests.get(tempurl, timeout=10)
soup = BeautifulSoup(tempcont.content, "html.parser")

print(soup.prettify())

Make sure your ISP doesn't block torrent sites.

You can wait till the element is visible.
try waits

search  = WebDriverWait(browser,5).until(lambda x: x.find_element_by_id('thesearchbox')
# where WebDriverWait(DRIVER,TIMEOUT_SECONDS)
browser.find_element_by_id('thesearchbutton').click()
It keeps handling NoSuchElementException error for the specified amount of seconds.

torrentz.eu is no longer active

https://tribune.com.pk/story/1156409/tor...one-knows/

Quote:Although the home page of Torrentz.eu is still active, it has completely disabled its search functionality and has removed all torrent links. It is still not clear why the website has been shut down.

your code does work with that site for me. it printed out the html. However you dont need requests or beautifulsoup, if you use selenium. Selenium can make requests and parse html. You can also do it in the background so it doesnt bring up a browser. You should also use wait instead of time sleep. It will be faster.

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys
from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By
from selenium.webdriver.support.ui import WebDriverWait
from selenium.webdriver.support import expected_conditions as EC

 
browser = webdriver.Firefox()
browser.get("https://torrentz2.eu/")
WebDriverWait(browser, 10).until(EC.presence_of_element_located((By.ID, 'search')))
 
#class selenium.webdriver.support.expected_conditions.title_contains(Torrent)
 
search = browser.find_element_by_id('thesearchbox')
search.send_keys('xxxxx')
search.send_keys(Keys.RETURN) # hit return after you enter search text
WebDriverWait(browser, 10).until(EC.presence_of_element_located((By.CLASS_NAME, 'results')))
