I wanted to deploy the scrapy spider written with python. Refering the documentation it tells me to install scrapyd ubuntu package. But there's no additional resources in the docs.

Is there any way to install it from other sources ?

No, it doesn't. The documentation says "if you're in the special position to be running ubuntu...", but you're not running Ubuntu.


Well, scrapyd is a pretty normal pip-packaged piece of software. So, you can pretty directly install it using pip:

sudo apt install python3-pip
pip3 install --user scrapyd

That's it. By the way, you're looking at the drastically outdated documentation for Scrapy 1.0; you'll want to read the current documentation (2.5 today), https://docs.scrapy.org/en/latest/ . And that's the scrapy, not the scrapyd documentation you've been looking at. The Scrapyd docs can be found on https://scrapyd.readthedocs.io/en/stable/index.html

On Linux Mint it is packaged under python3-scrapy name from universe repository:

sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo apt update
sudo apt install python3-scrapy
