I am creating a cooking/recipe website and will be indexing other recipe sites on the internet. We have designed a workflow for crawling and indexing web sites and have begun writing the scripts, however, our developer had some major health issus and had to quit her job. We need a developer experience with PHP, Codeigniter, and Smarty to take over and complete these scripts.
The first 1-2 scripts must be written custom for each website we crawl as the recipe layouts of each site are different... the next set of scripts will be the same for every site, however, the data from the first set of scripts will also be parsed in exactly the same way. We need a developer experienced with crawling/scraping sites and collecting data to finish these scripts.
This will have an opportunity for ongoing development as we have many other features we want to build into the web site.
If this first task is completed successfully, I will be looking to have you complete other tasks totalling $5000-$10,000 in the next 2-3 months.
