help euro € price problem amazon letters: & n b s p ;

See original GitHub issue

I read about change Dockerfile but with euro there is a problem on amazon France Italy Germany and all the country with euro€value: The price contain strange characters 19,99 € example: <span id="price_inside_buybox" class="a-size-medium a-color-price"> 19,99&nbsp;€ </span>

And the program tells me that it’s not able to convert in float the string of the price.

I edited en_US.UTF-8 to it_IT.UTF-8 or fr or gr but it didn’t work.

Someone managed to make it work with € ? Thanks

If you are not in a hurry to grab yourself some GPUs (believe me, I wish I could have bought a 3080 FE when I had a chance), I suggest you to wait until @EricJMarti implements the internationalization framework. But if you want I can fork the repo and “maintain” an ad-hoc solution.

It’s not that simple. The locale must be changed to it_IT.UTF-8, yes, but you need to change some code too. I’m no Python expert, but I currently have a Docker container scaping Amazon for 2080 that are currently on stock and I’m receiving the notifications on my Discord server.

You have to remove the &nbsp; HTML entity using html.unescape() (I’ve added it to the price_str in file). Then you have to change strings corresponding to “add to cart” to “aggiungi al carrello” in some parts of the code.

After that, re-build the container and create your config. I’ve tested it on only, I’ll try and test it on other domains tomorrow if I have some spare time, but it should work for every Euro country. But you have to translate every string in every language you want to scrape.
