pip install Scrapy
Scrapy relies on some external libraries so if you have trouble installing it there is additional information available on the official website at: http://doc.scrapy.org/en/latest/intro/install.html.
Currently, Scrapy only supports Python 2.7, which is more restrictive than other packages introduced in this book. Previously, Python 2.6 was also supported, but this was dropped in Scrapy 0.20. Also due to the dependency on Twisted, support for Python 3 is not yet possible, though the Scrapy team assures me they are working to solve this.
