    Use a Python Generator to Crawl the Star Wars API

    pythonpython

    In this lesson, you will be introduced to Python generators. You will see how a generator can replace a common function and learn the benefits of doing so. You will learn what role the yield keyword provides in functions and how it differs from a return. Building on that knowledge, you will learn how to build a generator to recursively crawl an API (swapi.co) and return Star Wars characters from "The Force Awakens".
