Web Scraping App using Ruby or Curl

Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$250 - $750

Project Description:
This project will involve web scraping with either Ruby or Curl.

I will provide information about a web API which can be accessed with Ruby or Curl to produce a list of academic references (either 1 or an arbitrary number of references).

Those references should be passed online to Google Scholar. In turn Google Scholar will in some cases locate a PDF document vs. an HTML document vs. a website link. The output of the web scraping App should be a set of PDF or HTML documents corresponding to the output from Google scholar. These documents should be placed in a specified Folder in Mac OS.

As a bonus, a developer who is familiar with DevonThink would write this as a DevonThink script, with the output as PDF or HTML or web link documents in the Devonthink Inbox.

Skills required:
Mac OS, Ruby on Rails, Web Scraping
