Get all site tree with Ruby

Hello!

I need to grab all site data with all tree structure. Every page have
links
to children pages. How to build site tree with Nokogiri? It must be
recursive page visiting and scraping all directory links, but I can’t
recognize full algorhytm. How to do that?
P.S. And I don’t need to “Save all site on disk with HTTRack”. Data will
be
processed and copied on the new version of redesigned original site.

At which point you’re get stuck?

Simply GET index page, parse it via nokogiri, select tags which you
interested in, extract urls from href attribute, do recursive GET on
these
urls.
Each page type should have its own function that performs GET and
parsing.

If you have to fetch pretty huge amount of pages, then you need to store
your grabbing state somewhere in database. For example, keep separate
table
for urls to be parsed. (url is a unique key), and mark rows a “to be
parsed” and “already parsed”. Of course you need to normalize all urls,
not
avoid duplicates in table.

Да и мог бы спросить в ror2ru.

Some time ago I solved similar problem (but I needed continuous
grabbing),
organizing several workers:

Probably you do not need such a complex thing, but you may get some
ideas
from it.

It’s recursion, you call it again…

def start
get_subtree(‘/‘)
end

def get_subtree(url)
#fetch the page
#parse it
#for each link
#normalize the link
#if link not already visited
#add link to table of visited links
get_subtree(link)
#end
#end
end

Вот как раз на этой рекурсивной функции я и застрял. Не могу допетрить
как
ее написать.

Yeah, thanks. I figured it out. Now I stuck with million other problems,
but this is another theme =)
