    Hello,

    I have Follow Liker tumblr, but it can't scrape people who liked/reblogged a specific blog post, or the followers of a blog.

    I would like to know if there is a bot who does it (especially, if it's free: I already have Follow Liker tumblr, so it would be only to scrape followers).

    Thanks.

    I don't think that we can scrape followers on Tumblr by using bots efficiently.
    I think manual wok is better than using bots and tools.

    I'm not sure how to do it as I'm working on a Python script like this right now. Here's something that might help:

    https://automatetheboringstuff.com/chapter11/

    What I'm trying to do is to get Python to automatically click the "Show More Notes" link at the bottom.

    If the post you're targeting doesn't have a list of notes with the "Show More Notes" link or it's in another language, then create a secondary blog with a theme that has this feature, reblog the post over there, and run the script on it.

    Finished!!

    https://github.com/xjdeng/tumblr-following-tools/blob/master/scrape_users.py

    Requires Python 2.7, Firefox, and Selenium. If you have Python but no Selenium, please run pip install selenium.

    How to run:

    Code:
    import scrape_users as s
    (a,b,c) = s.runme(url)
    # url: The Tumblr post you want to scrape.
    # a: A list of ALL users who liked and reshhared the post.
    # b: A list of users who reblogged the post.
    # c: A list of users who liked the post.

    This script stops after clicking the "Show more notes" link 100 times. If you want it to get even more notes, run it as (a,b,c)=s.runme(url,1000) to click "Show more notes" up to 1000 times.

    This won't work if the post you want to target doesn't have the notes listed below, is not in English, and/or has a nonstandard format. In that case:

    - Create a new Tumblr blog and pick a theme which shows the notes below along with "Show more notes". A secondary blog will do.
    - Go to the URL on your blog where you reblogged the post you want to target and input that as the url parameter.

    TumblingJazz might be the best for those things. It scrapes like a charm, like 1000 accounts/second, and has different options for scraping.
    It's great !
