Experience with startups, automation, data extraction (scraping) & processing.
I also use Python for scripting.
I have built several fairly complex browser extensions (like specialized adblock) for both Chrome and Safari.
I will advise on feasibility and architecture.
I have built a number of web scraping scripts and visual debugger for CasperJS
You can either dissect the inner workings of ajax calls (if the website has any) or write a regular full-page scraper which traverses the product catalog.
Popular choices for scraping are casperjs, beautiful soup, mechanize, etc. Each having its strengths and drawbacks - casper for instance can emulate the browser behavior, while the rest are much less resource intensive but often require going through extra hoops when the website is complicated.
Good ideas shared. Looking forward to our follow up call.
Maciej is a fantastic project advisor. He assessed the feasibility of a project in clear and simple terms - very helpful for me, as a non-technical person. As a full stack developer, he advised me on the pieces needed, technical requirements, what skills to look for in hiring developers. He answered all my questions about extensions. He offered to handle proof of concept and mockups, interview the developers, and even supervise them. He's a pleasure to talk with, a great communicator. Thanks!!
Maciej was able to answer all our questions regarding extensions (media privileges, layout options, compression, etc). Will do another call & reach out as we get our extension built.
Very insightful & pleasant call with Maciej!
