I need a script to either scrape or use Amazon's API to get a list of all the books in http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?qid=1367378905&rh=n%3A1267878011%2Cn%3A1294449011&me=A2L77EE7U53NWQ&sort=pmrank (this specific seller). It must go beyond the 170 pages listed on the site. These should be returned in such a way as to be able to be stored in a MYSQL database (though for the script itself it can just return it as a PHP variable, I'll handle the MYSQL myself
The only catch is that it cannot fetch the entire inventory of this seller (books + everything else) and then manually sort just the books out -- that's woefully inefficient on system resources. Other than that, feel free to manually scrape or use Amazon's API, whichever may be useful (though I doubt you can find a way to scrape it unless you've found a place on Amazon that I haven't -- but if you have, all the more power to you!).
In case you haven't tried this in a while, Amazon evidently had a easy way to do this via their API and has shut it down recently -- so you might need to get creative. Please make sure you can do this before bidding. If you message me a working demo (showing all the books, I suppose), that will almost certainly win the bid (obviously you don't need to send the source code, just the demo). API is preferable to scraping, but either are fine.
Bonus points if you make it quick (within the PHP) to change the seller being looked at -- just a variable or something simple.
More bonus points if you can get all of it in a single API call, though multiple (that is, paginated) calls are allowed as well -- however, whether API or scraping, you must be able to return at least 10 books per API call or page scrape (any less is too inefficient).
Additional bonus points if you can get the price, condition and/or description of the book in the same search. I'm not sure if this is possible, but if you're able to you have a better chance of hire.
I'll hire based on the combination of abilities above (including the 'bonus points' feature) and wage. But, in the end, I'm willing to pay more for a perfect script :).
Feel free to message me if you have any questions.
