So, I've been interested in browser automation using Python for ages, and I just happened across the splinter module, which is great. I am not dead-set on using splinter for this, although the module will probably be involved in future ventures.

I would like to create a script that can go to a given page store all of the text from that page (html file or document, doesn't matter) while preserving the original formatting but leaving out images and such, navigate to every page linked to from the original page and do the same thing, and repeat the whole thing until I have the entire site archived on my computer. Of course, there would need to be some sort of safeguard so I only store that site, instead of the entire internet, ha.

What modules should I use for this? I've Googled it, but there are just too damn many and I suck too much at programming to figure out which one to use! xlml? BeautifulSoup? Point me in the right direction, guys.

If you can do it with wget then you should. If you can't, you really want something like phantomJS.

Need to make a simple site for college creds.

Site needs:
Java script

What software is free and easy to use?
Can I code it in FF in an empty tab with F12?

Why would that be hundreds of files? Utilities for x in one file, utilities for y in another, a main file and some miscellanous stragglers that are probably going to just be configs. Like, if you have hundreds of files at 1000 lines of code, that's 10 lines of code per file. At 10000 that's 100. 100 LOC is not much.

Like, dafuq Java people?

I Should have said 140-200 lines for a simple app with multiple options. If you wanna be competitive in the market type apps not POC one function apps.

I've got a project at about 12 000 LOC. It consists of many programs and a library. I keep my tree reasonably organised and from the terminal I can easily open anything I need to
I guess it's preference. To me, it seems like a waste, but I have yet to find an IDE that does projects and which does not feel sluggish and crap.

Well, Java forces you to put every public class in its own file. C# and some C++ programmers tend to do this by convention, as well.


I could see that being doable at 12k LOC, but there's no way that's sustainable when you hit 100k LOC or even 1 million LOC. Not many one-person projects get that large, but it does happen, and for a lot of us (though perhaps not OP in this case) these projects are side projects. Using the same tools that you do at work cuts down on mental context-switching leads to better productivity.

Plus, even for small projects, I've found that using an IDE for debugging beats using a command-line debugger. Visual Studio's "parallel stacks" view in particular is fantastic. I showed that tool to a greybeard at work the other day and it blew his mind. I mean, look at this: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd998398.aspx

so I have a simple table on my website and I am using a filter script on it that shows the rows that pass the filters, I want only the first column info to be shown so I have hidden all the other columns.
My problem is I want the first column info (images) to be presented horizontally like a gallery instead of vertically, since I am not very advanced is there any way to do this using html table or do I need divs?

It shouldn't be too hard. For each row of your table you should have:
<tr><td>your table row data</td></tr>
instead just have one set of <tr> tags with multiple <td> tags and everything should display on the same row.

Use divs inside a flexbox: https://jsfiddle.net/JUq7C/ (Try resizing the output section.)

(Btw, don't complain that nothing supports flexbox; It's not 2010 anymore: http://caniuse.com/#search=flexbox )

looks good but my filter script is using the table row and column numbers to do the filtering, if I make the table with divs how would the script take the values of each specific column? here is the script with the table id "thetable"

<script type='text/javascript'>//<![CDATA[
$(document).ready(function() {
$(function() {
$( "#slider-range ).slider({
range: true,
min: 0,
max: 100,
values: [ 0, 100 ],
slide: function( event, ui ) {

$( "#amount" ).val( ui.values[ 0 ] + "% - " + ui.values[ 1 ] + "%");

Learn what MVC is. Embrace it. Use it. https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Model%E2%80%93view%E2%80%93controller

Right now, your code is deviating from MVC. It has the following problems:
(1) It doesn't store the model, but instead parses the html *every* time.
(2) It then modifies the current html, instead of generating new html.
Also, a flex box is *NOT* a table. The only thing the table tag should ever be used for is storing tabular data. (Tabular data is data that has records (aka rows in Excel) and fields (aka columns in Excel).) The table tag should *never* be used for layout, nor for a gallery of items. (A gallery is what's in your pic and my fiddle.)

Hey yall, I've been working on a method that receives two strings as parameters. The method returns the concatenation of both strings BUT removes the duplicate characters. (e.x. "Red" and "Edge" become "redge"):

public class justforgiggles
public static void main(String []args)
String first = "red";
String second = "edge";
String third = "bu";
String fourth = "ull";

String concat = "";
String concat2 = "";
String finalConcat;

You are getting this error because char is a primitive type, so you cannot use compareTo

You can simply use the == operator:
second.charAt(i) == third.charAt(i)

The pro way to solve this is to find an off the shelf object that does exactly what you need it to do: accept only unique elements and preserve their order. I don't use Java so I can't recommend anything. I'm not reading that mess, but I will tell you that the clean way to do this yourself is to have one method that returns the comparison result for one pair of strings and then have some separate logic for managing the inputs and their order.

Currently working on this new version:

String first = "red";
String second = "edy";
String concat = "";

for(int i =0;i<first.length();i++)
for(int j =0;j<second.length();j++)
concat = first.charAt(i)+ concat;

What if, instead of comparing the characters in the Strings first and second, you compare the characters with what you have already added to the concat String

for each character in first
if character is not in concat, add it
for each character in second
if character is not in concat, add it
