Project Description

Hi there,

We have 3 different websites/sources we'd like to scrape data from daily and store in xml to be retrieved/displayed on any other domain/sever. No databases should be needed. Note that we do not have a dedicated windows/linux server so a cron job to update the feed won't be possible.

Feed 1: Sports Fixtures. Scraped from 1 page which contains all the fixtures we require, to be stored individually including date/time/match into individual feeds "[url removed, login to view]", "[url removed, login to view]" etc etc. There are about 12 feeds we require, but all are from the same source and a simple design so should be easy to get the data.

Feed 2: Live Scores: The Scraping of a live scores website with the data updated either every time a visitor loads to feed or in a set interval if possible (every 5/10 minutes for example). To be displayed on output with league name, title, scores etc.

Feed 3: League tables. Several European league tables, scraped from 1 source into xml. Looks like this one will be easy, just simple scraping of table data with all the teams in the league, games played, points etc etc.

Examples of the output of each feed would be great, note once again. that the sets of xml will be stored on 1 server, and retrieved/displayed to our visitors on others (we've done this before, seemed quite easy).

English speaking freelancer required for this 1 time job, should be very easy for anyone with xml, scraping, htmldom knowledge etc etc. Payment via freelancer only, thanks guys!
