1.) This website will automatically mirror content from a popular news site. It will copy much of the functionality from www.mirrordot.org. 2.) A simple, clean, professional frontend will need to be designed from the template I have provided (1 basic HTML page). This page will function as the "main page" and will list the mirrored articles/websites that have been indexed. 3.) A backend script will need to be coded. This script will run as a cronjob, and will parse the front page of a popular news site. The contents of the front page will then be compared to the contents of our "main page" (as listed above.) a.) If the contents of the front page match the contents of our "main page", then no changed need to be made. b.) If the news articles on the front page are listed in a different order than on our "main page", then out "main page" needs to be updated to match the front page. c.) If there is a NEW article listed in the front page that is not listed on our main page, then this article needs to be mirrored, and also needs to be listed on our main page. (See step 4.) 4.) When a new article is identified, the contents of this new article needs to be mirrored and saved on our webserver as an HTML document. All pictures, video, media that is shown on the article is also mirrored (unless the size of the media is over 5MB). a.) Mirrored articles have frames inserted at the top of the page (much the same as Google Cache and [url removed, login to view] works.) 5.) Mirrored sites/articles will expire after 48 hours of the date they were created. This logic must be included in the script. Once a mirror expires, the mirror files will be deleted, and the listing will also be deleted from our "main page". 6.) Code should have proper commenting done. This website concept is really quite simple. Please take a look at [url removed, login to view] to get a solid understanding of what I am looking for. View "Other files" for additonal specs.
