Put together a little web scraper in Python with scrapy (scrapy.org) and selenium. Massively impressed, made it super simple to get the data that I wanted off the pages.
Wait though – so the model binding calls through into the DB as well, via Eloquent? That’s cool out of the box, but I hope it’s tweakable. Say e.g. I want to use Doctrine. And also, I want the model binding more on form input.
