Scrapy On Windows
Required pieces of software
Download Python 2.7 for Window’s from this link for windows or go browse Python’s Website a little before doing this. If you are just like my Lazy Sundays or eager to get it done as fast as you can, just Click here and Run the official msi file of Python 2.7 that can run directly onnyour windows machine.
pip is the other thing you want to install, but its get installed with above download. we need pip to install plugins used with python called packages.
Now we need to install setup tools. and here is the link just click on it and run.(For Windows without PowerShell 3 or for installation without a command-line, download ez_setup.py using your preferred web browser or other technique and “run” that file.)
You need to adjust PATH environment variable to include paths to the Python executable and additional scripts.
The following paths need to be added to PATH:
pip install scrapy
That’s it. just sit and watch(possibly anything other than black and white command prompt window). It will install scrapy on your windows machine.
