Sololearn Website

I am currently working on web scraping and thought of getting my followers list via it. I did a lot of research work on getting the website link where our followers are displayed but couldn't find it. So,if anyone of you know the link the page then please please share it with me. Please Thanks Krish

Hello, Yeah, Ipang is right here. 'You represent, warrant, and agree that you will not contribute any Content or User Submission (each of those terms is defined below) or otherwise use the Services or interact with the Services in a manner that: [...] h. "crawls,” “scrapes,” or “spiders” any page, data, or portion of or relating to the Services or Content (through use of manual or automated means);' This is your contract with SoloLearn, so unless they tell you otherwise (in written form, superceding all prior agreements), this is what you are bound to/by. That being said, you can write to [email protected] for express written permission... see if they will give that to you. (Likely, if it is publicly available data, they wouldn't mind, but those are my words and I'm not a SoloLearn agent -- just a volunteer -- so I don't have any authority to bind them to any agreements with you or anyone else. You would still want to await their specific response to you.) Happy coding! --Janning⭐ Platinum Moderator

Please don't scrape the site, it's against one of the policies in the terms of use https://www.sololearn.com/Terms-of-Use/ * Look for "What are the basics of using the Services" section.

PS We're not privy to the agreements SoloLearn may or may not have made with individual others, so we really can't comment there. The Terms of Use is written in such a way that if SoloLearn decides to crack down on those who don't have express written consent/permission one day, they reserve the right to do so.

PPS "scrape" or "web-scraping", not "scrap" or "web-scrapping" one means to extract, the other means to discard

Krish Nothing of such specifics was written (scraping own codes), I will leave that matter for the moderators, as they are more informed about the rules. I also have seen such codes, don't know what to say about that either though, cause I don't see any action taken against such scraping codes. My personal opinion is, we don't have to repeat after them simply because they managed to escape the rules.

Krish Sure, like I was saying, it's better to ask first, but if you want to run the risk, it's up to you. I'm not your legal counsel. 😁

Sorry, Krish ... Gotta take your chances with the email for non-urgent issues like the rest of us. I email them pretty often too. Their response times vary widely (and I suspect we should cut them some slack since it's very possible they were recently in mortal danger and might still be these days with the civil unrest... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_Nagorno-Karabakh_war#Aftermath ).

As per my knowledge Solo learn website doesn't provide any details about following and followers. These details only visible in app. So you can't scrap from web because those information not available on site

Their is no official API for sololearn. So it's not legal

Sonic -- As far as I know, the dev team and support staff (i.e. [email protected]) are in Armenia while the higher level operations folk (corporate office) are in the Bay Area, but that's just my best guess based on what I could find on LinkedIn and other clues I've picked up along the way (reading their blog posts and third party articles online, following certain test profiles, etc.). 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♂️ If you look at the average salaries of developers in the US vs Armenia, it could make sense for a company like SoloLearn to have physical presence in both areas so they can foster tech startup connections in the Bay Area.

Janning⭐ thanks for your efforts but my use is that i will get only the name of my followers and get data of my profile only like the amount of likes in each code and etc. Which is available publicly and even non registered people can see it.

+5

But Janning⭐ can i take the permission from team sololearn through their email [email protected] But i heard that they are inactive in email and never reply. So if you know any other means to contact team sololearn please recommend it to me.

Ok thank you Janning⭐

Janning⭐ interesting post/link. I was under the impression that the SL 'office' was in the Bay Area and not in Armenia. Do they have staff in both the US as well as Armenia currently?

But Ipang there is python library and many codes in the sololearn itself in which people have scraped the sololearn website.

Ok Ipang Thanks for your efforts but i just wanted to ask that can I scrap my own written codes??
