Web scraping using Python and 2 different approaches: custom crawler and using Wikipedia API.

Our first approach is to get information from a website using the Requests and BeautifulSoup4 Python packages. Next, to that, we will use Wikipedia’s API (MediaWiki) and Wikipedia-API Python library (which is basically wrapper around Wikipedia’s API) to gather data from the Wikipedia website. Also, I give additional information about the advantages and disadvantages of each approach: web crawler vs API.
