In this tutorial, I will teach you how to download PDF files from URLs using Python programming language. The complete script to download pdfs from website is given below.
We will make use of Beautiful Soup 4 and Requests libraries to build the functionality of downloading PDF files from URLs.
Python Download PDF From URL
pip install requests
pip install bs4
# Import libraries import requests from bs4 import BeautifulSoup # URL from which pdfs to be downloaded url = "https://nanonets.com/blog/deep-learning-ocr/" # Requests URL and get response object response = requests.get(url) # Parse text obtained soup = BeautifulSoup(response.text, 'html.parser') # Find all hyperlinks present on webpage links = soup.find_all('a') i = 0 # From all links check for pdf link and # if present download file for link in links: if ('.pdf' in link.get('href', )): i += 1 print("Downloading file: ", i) # Get response object for link response = requests.get(link.get('href')) # Write content in pdf file pdf = open("pdf"+str(i)+".pdf", 'wb') pdf.write(response.content) pdf.close() print("File ", i, " downloaded") print("All PDF files downloaded")
