I need a programmer who have good experience in scrapping..
The application will access 1 website (must handle cookies etc... as it will use my username & password),
then it will retrieve the contents of that account and save it locally at the PC.
The contents are text & images...etc.
So it will be like a personal backup of what's there on that account.
You may write this in any language you like, but it must work on desktop (Windows OS).
I think it's easy application... but will have some interesting challenges ;)
The account uses AJAX... so we will need to use a headless browser,
There are many headless versions of Firefox, Safari, and others.
(search for "headless X" ... where X is the browser engine you want to use).
Then will need to issue a separate request to the URL that returns the AJAX data and then parse it separately.
Anyway, if you're interested, please let me know and we can discuss this in more details.
P.S. I will be the only user of that account,,, but I still need an easy User interface that looks nice :)
