Hey, there are various libraries used in python for web scraping. The most commonly used is BeautifulSoup and Request.

from bs4 import BeautifulSoup as soup
from urllib.request import urlopen as uReq
my_url = ‘enter the URL you want to scrape from’
uClient = uReq(my_url)
page_html = uClient.read()
uClient.close()
page_soup = soup(page_html, "html.parser")

For tutorial, you can refer this video which scrapes some content from flipkart: https://youtu.be/mKxFfjNyj3c
