The best way to learn is with examples, and Scrapy is no exception. For this reason, there is an example Scrapy project named dirbot, that you can use to play and learn more about Scrapy. It contains the dmoz spider described in the tutorial.

This dirbot project is available at: https://github.com/scrapy/dirbot

It contains a README file with a detailed description of the project contents.

If you’re familiar with git, you can checkout the code. Otherwise you can download a tarball or zip file of the project by clicking on Downloads.

The scrapy tag on Snipplr is used for sharing code snippets such as spiders, middlewares, extensions, or scripts. Feel free (and encouraged!) to share any code there.
