What do you like best?
BeautifulSoup is a beautiful tool that we have been using over the years to pull information from HTML documents.
Yes, there are many options available but BautifulSoup is over every other tool/library available. I firmly say this because of the experience. We have tried many options but BeautifulSoup has proved itself every time.
The wide variety of API it provides helps one to easily extract the data he/she desires in no time and within very few lines of code.
What do you dislike?
There is nothing major that I would like to discuss. Over the years it has always improved and never gave us any chance to defame it.
Overall experience is great and am extremely happy. No bad comments!
Recommendations to others considering the product
Yes, I would be very happy recommending this to one and all.
I would say is - "Try it once, you will never switch to anything else" and trust me same happened to me, after using BeautifulSoup I never even had a desire to try any other tool.
Go for it, it works as a charm!
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
There are various tasks/projects where we need to extract information from some HTML or XML documents. As BeautifulSoup is the best tool we use it everywhere we face such need.
Due to all the above mentioned positive points of the tool it is the only one we trust and rely for our projects.
