Get started web scraping with Scrapy and Python

Pip is a package manager for Python. There are a couple strange gotchas, the first is a highly active stackoverflow question that the install script for pip on Mac doesn’t quite work, instead you need to run:

$ python -m ensurepip --upgrade --user

With that you should have the “pip3” command available to you. Why it isn’t just “pip” has to do with a bunch of drama in the Python community I think but w/e we’ll just go with it.
