Comments are provided by Beautiful Soup which is a web scraping framework for Python. Web scraping is the process of extracting data from the website using automated tools to make the process faster. The Comment object is just a special type of NavigableString and is used to make the codebase more readable.

Syntax: 

<!-- COMMENT --> 

Below given examples explain the concept of comments in Beautiful Soup. 
Example 1: In this example, we are going to create a comment.

Python3




# Import Beautiful Soup
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
  
# Create the document
doc = "<b><!-- COMMENT --></b>"
  
# Initialize the object with the document
soup = BeautifulSoup(doc, "html.parser")
  
# Get the whole comment inside b tag
comment = soup.b
  
# Print the comment
print(comment)


Output: 

<b><!-- COMMENT --></b>

Example 2: In this example, we are going to create a comment and see its type.

Python3




# Import Beautiful Soup
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
  
# Create the document
doc = "<b><!-- COMMENT --></b>"
  
# Initialize the object with the document
soup = BeautifulSoup(doc, "html.parser")
  
# Get the whole comment inside b tag
comment = soup.b.string
  
# Print the type of the comment
print(type(comment))


Output: 

<class 'bs4.element.Comment'>
