We are very excited to be participating again this year on Google Summer of Code. After a successful experience last year where Julia Medina (now a proud Scrapinghubber!) worked on Scrapy API cleanup and per-spider settings, we are back again this year with 3 ideas approved:
- Jacob de Mayer from Germany is working on Simplified Scrapy Addons to make it super simple to enable extensions on Scrapy. A highly welcome addition to Scrapy and its growing userbase!. You can follow his blog to stay in touch with his progress: http://www.jakobdemaeyer.com/b/
- Berker Peksag from Turkey is working on Making Scrapy work on Python 3, finally bringing world-class scraping to the Python 3 world.
We would like to thank the Python Software Foundation for taking us again this year and wish the best luck to our students and all Summer of Code participants.
