Project Description

We require a script that can be regularly executed as a server cron process to build a comprehensive, accurate hierarchical taxonomy of parts products (Part) from the following URL (Source Site):

[url removed, login to view]

Key requirements for the script:

Ideally PHP. Otherwise, in order of preference: [url removed, login to view], Python, Ruby.

- It must create, rename, update, and delete Parts and Elements.

- It must provide the following details about each Element/Part:

System Id

Part Reference


UI (where appropriate either image or image + coordinates)

- It must create a MySQL database with a fully normalised schema.

- It must email notifications (success,error) with details of process execution.

- It must not make too many concurrent requests to the Source Site.

- It must complete within a reasonable timeframe.

- It must reliably execute (<1% failure rate); consider handling of transient HTTP error codes

Preferences for the script:

- It should run with a minimum memory and CPU footprint.

- It should be resilient to changes in the underlying structure of the source site.
