scrapy is provided via PIP so it can be installed with:

apt-get update;
apt-get install python-pip;
pip install scrapy;

Once that is done, scrapy should be in your path and you can run your script with something like:

scrapy runspider

Edit: Changed the apt package name as it is python-pip and not just pip.
