In "Scraping data with rvest and purrr" I will talk through how to pair and combine rvest (the knife) and purrr (the frying pan) to scrape interesting data from a bunch of websites.

rvest is a popular R package that makes it easy to scrape data from html web pages.

purrr is a relatively new package that makes it easy to write code for a single element of a list that can be quickly generalized to the rest of that same list.
