When it just works

It makes me work really fast but still secure for my clients. I look really professional even though what I did was only suggesting and installing Crawlera. It's awesome!

Pros

It really saves my time as a web scraping specialists. I always need rotated proxies for my client needs. I keep creating a new project and it is a lot of hassle of I have to buy proxies, renew proxies, and create proxy rotation on my own. I am glad I don't even need to think about it. It just works!

Cons

Well, it's just doesn't have enough advanced documentation on Scrapy Splash combined with Crawlera. Their development team in Github is very responsive though.

Relatively Easy To Use

Our company, whatoplay.com, aggregates data from multiple sources around the world. Since we started using Crawlera, we haven't really encountered big issues. Our common ones in the last 6 months is just reaching our limit, so we just had to increase our plan.

Pros

We're only using Crawlera for our data scraping needs and it has worked seamlessly since we started using it in 2016. When we had to upgrade to a higher limit, the transition was fast, and no dev time was wasted updating our existing codebase.

Cons

Pricing can be a bit tricky especially if your need is right in between the plans.

Worst thing I have ever used in my Software Engineering career

Pros

No pros - its a library full of bugs

Cons

*** NEVER USE THIS CRAP LIBRARY *** We had a paid plan, and this Splash is full of bugs Proxies for HTTPS urls do not work at all, the splash page just hangs forever There is no real-time UI that you can look whats happening inside Splash We created few tickets about the errors we were getting, they respond after 10+ days for a single ticket When taking screenshots, it generates white blank screenshots even the page is loaded perfectly When clicking on elements, it sometimes works, but sometimes just makes that element 'active' but does not click When selecting an element, it sometimes finds element, but sometimes does not, even though the source-code of page has that element when I print that in logs

Amazing product - can't get any better for speedy data mining

Overall experience with them has been stellar, I will likely be a customer for life.

Pros

I like scalability. Sometimes we need to submit millions of requests immediately and with Scrapinghub we can really put the pedal to the metal. We rarely have downtime, and it's really allowed us to grow our company and thrive. Easy to integrate into scrapy and other python tools.

Cons

Their billing support can be moody, but the product is fantastic!!

I have a good experience with scrappinhumb, in a matter of minutes I can develop and publish a new spider.

Pros

The software delivers the exactly promised result. It has a friendly interface and an efficient support.

You need a roadmap of new features and the pricing of third-party services.
