Project Description

Web Scraper for Health Board Website - Parl/Python/Ruby

I need a scraper to periodically (2 x month) scrape the Vancouver Costal Health restaurant inspection website: [url removed, login to view] The scraper will find all businesses with violations that match specific keywords (e.g. recycling, waste, garbage). After the scraper is run I'd like to receive an email with a summary of the results. This scraper will be used to track which businesses have been written up for violations that include the supplied keywords.

I need an admin tool that will allow me to:

1. Find all the business with violations that match certain keywords for a given data range

2. Allow me to filter by postal code and city name.

3. Export the information in CSV format.

The admin tool doesn't need to be fancy. This is an internal tool. No one will ever see the admin tool except for me. In a perfect world the admin tool will be built on top of something like the Django admin framework or similar Rails admin gem so that it requires less coding effort.

The delivered solution needs to be setup and running on a cost effective (preferably free) hosting solution that will store the data, run the scrapers and host the admin tool e.g. Google App Engine.
