How to set Selenium’s headless mode in python.
If you are thinking web scraping with Selenium, headless mode is good choice for you.
You can easily run a scraper file on crontab without settings on the server’s display in headless mode. It differs a lot if you use it or not.
To use the headless mode, you only set the following snippet in your scraper file.
from selenium.webdriver.chrome.options import Options
options = Options()
options.headless = True
This syntax was introduced in 2018 and checked still working as of July 2021.
Happy web scraping!
