Project Description

This project requires a true expert in the field of RETS/IDX Standards.

I have a Wordpress website I am working on that uses the wp-property ([url removed, login to view]) plugin for displaying listings. The plugin provider provides a paid addon ( XML Importer - [url removed, login to view] ) for a rets connector to download listings.(IDX Rets stands for Real Estate Transaction Standard, it downloads data via XML. The rets connector is based on an old version of an open source script called PHrets:

[url removed, login to view]

This rets downloader is does not work efficiently and it works in the fashion of it downloading all the Images for the listings every time it does an update, causing the process to take over 30 mins for an update.

So this requires someone to be able to provide a new script that is capable of downloading the data and pictures, as well as being able to perform logic on the existing listings.

Or modify the existing one, to be able to check first what needs to be updated and then either download the new updates,delete the old listings, or modify any changes on existing listings. Basically be able to do incremental downloads based on modification dates etc.

Also the ability to run various different downloads base on property Classes (ex: commercial; residential, detached, strata, multifamily, land). set using a cron job to run at various times.

This job is only for proficient programmers and with experience with MLS listings, RETS/IDX XML downloading.

Request for early payment of job before complete will be ignored.

All work will become property of the employer.

Please submit portfolio and examples of work pertaining to this topi and references if available, as these will verified for proficiency.

Successful candidate will qualify for being part of a project involving this on a more permanent basis.

Project to be completed in 7 calender days and late or delays (unreasonable) will be cause for project cancellations.

Any clarification please ask.
