Hi I have over 8 years of experience in writing web scraping code, I also specialize exclusively in web scraping which allows me to create higher quality scripts than most freelancers. For this bid price I will make a desktop app you can use to easily scrape ads from craigslist into a csv format for uploading to your site. Most of this CL code I already have written(highly efficient code) so all I have to do is add a few customizations and create a GUI.
To know what you require please tell me
are you trying to scrape hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands of ads?moreless
