Hello! The third week of GSoC coding period is coming to an end. Here is an update on what I achieved in the past week and what I am looking forward to.
What did you do this week?
Created separate tox testing environments for testing integration with third-party parsers like Robotexclusionrulesparser and Reppy.
Made Travis use the new tox environments.
Described these parsers in Scrapy documentation.
Got Robotexclusionrulesparser to work with unicode user agents.
What is coming up next?
I will be working on creating a python based robots.txt parser which compliant with spec and supports modern conventions.
Did you get stuck anywhere?
