Server script to extract info from html files

Closed

Server script to extract info from html files--this should be a very quick turnaround\r\n\r\nWe need a server script to read HTML files (& css), extract data from them, and call an API with extracted data.\r\n\r\nWe will be creating HTML files. The html files will appear in a preselected directory in our server.\r\n\r\nWe are open to suggestions on what language to implement this.\r\n\r\nEvery 30 seconds we need a program to notice new files (i.e. [url removed, login to view]), read the file, and parse it. The html file will contain comments, within the comments might be text segments that look like this:\r\n\r\[url removed, login to view]\r\nbegin file\r\nHTML0\r\nHTML0.1\r\n\r\nHTML0.2\r\n\r\n\r\nHTML1\r\nHTML2\r\nend of file\r\n\r\nWe need the program to read this file create a parameter list that will be used to call addWidMaster():\r\nwid=xyz // name of html file\r\nHTML=all the content // the left overs\r\nCSS= contents of [url removed, login to view] // read the CSS file separately and put it here\r\ntestwid= {\r\n \"message\": \"This is a test SMS\",\r\n \"metadata\" : \"{\"status\": 1, \"method\": \"acctDTO\"}\r\n \"gojs\": \"{ what we are talking about end of testwid}\r\n }\r\n // the \'inside\' of the testwid\r\ntestwid22={\r\n \"message\": \"This is a test SMS\",\r\n \"metadata\" : \"{\"status\": 1, \"method\": \"acctDTO\"}\r\n \"gojs\": \"{ what we are talking end of wid22}\"\r\n }\r\n // the \'inside\' of the testwid22\r\n...repeat for all the {} sections id you find them\r\n\r\nThen with the result call a put call in this form:\r\nPUT [url removed, login to view] {parameter list gathered above in parameter DTO format see below} you will get a result back from API in data model format.\r\n\r\nAdd the results of the API call \'raw\' to the bottom of HTML\r\n\r\nbelow HTML2\r\n\r\n\r\nParameterDTO format:\r\n[{\"ParameterName\":\"exampleCreator\",\"ParameterValue\":\"eq:cody\"},{\"ParameterName\":\"examplePrice\",\"ParameterValue\":\"eq:$[url removed, login to view]\"}]\r\n\r\nDataModel format:\r\n[{\"Key\":\"exampledatawid1\",\"Value\":\"val1}\"},{\"Key\":\"exampledatawid6\",\"Value\":\"val2\"}]

Hi, I'm really interested in this project. I've already done few projects similiar to this (crawlers, etc.). I would prefer to do it in perl, but shell is also an option.
