  1. Derek, you are actually a legend. I was able to automate my job (web scraper -> excel analysis) by watching ~6 of your videos. Big time saver

  2. Thanks for this, unfortunately, they says this: "Hi, we only whitelist endpoints with public api documentation. No scraping for free accounts."

    Do u have another option for scrapping?

  3. The Problem with that is that the program doesn't run on your machine. You can also put your Code into a infinite Loop and add a sleep time at the end of your code like this:

    import time

    while True::
    Your Code….

  4. Two months before I did try this pythonanywhere. It was not so easy like this video. Tough part was creating a virtual environment and installing packages and making it work in code. It didn't work for me, and hence I chose wayscipt. Why don't u make another video for pythonanywhere with tougher code which requires pip install packages.

  5. "2:45""using custom bot without coding" Leonardo invece si è presentato all’esame.

    Davanti alla commissione. Ma quando è entrato ha chiesto di chiudere la porta

  6. The script I try to run and automate has issues with whitelisting. I can scrape from that website normally from my system but from this website (pythonanywhwere) I can't idk

  7. Dude your channel is great man this is exactly what I searched for and I saw your channel and clicked immediatly because your vids are great

  8. Hi Derek, thanks for the clear and concise video. Could you perhaps share how would one practically use this? How can we access the files stored in the "Files" tab?

  9. Please let me know if you could make the video on oop basics. I am using it but still have a strange feeling that I do not understand it 100%.

  10. I was thinking about a solution to this problem. Our office firewall is blocking sockets to connect to gmail. Now I can create a temporary gmail account and use your video to create a script that is scraping some vacancies daily and send them to my main gmail mailbox. Thank you!

  11. great one Derrick. I'm more interested to see automation codes in python that will help managing disk space…
