OpenSea NFT Scraper


OpenSea has a lot of NFT pictures. It's a good example of learning how to scrape. Compared to other typical static websites, pictures in OpenSea are dynamic loading along with the endless scroll. Pictures are loading if they are on the screen and will be gone
when they are out of the screen.


Clicknium is a Python automation library and very easy to do this kind of scraping work. It's more than a Python library but also provides a smooth and interactive coding experience with VS Code plugins and browser plugins.
