a user-friendly and extensible web data extraction

Irena Holubová, Tomáš Novella


Serrano is a new wrapping language that has three goals: (1) ability to run in a restricted environment, such as a browser extension, (2) extensibility to balance the tradeoffs between expressiveness of a command set and safety, and (3) processing capabilities to eliminate the need for additional programs to clean the extracted data. Serrano has been successfully deployed in a number of projects and provided competitive results.

Where to get it

Serrano is open-source and is therefore freely accessible. Users are welcome with their feedback.
