I am looking a developer who can help me build a server based block grabber bot for Amazon flex app. The details are listed below. If this is something that you can do it or have done it before please let me know how much you charge and how long it will take you to complete. if you didn't understand the requirements and how the system works, please don't place a bid. More info on how the system works are as follows. Previous experience preferred!
Amazon flex block grabber script
The Block Grabber script is a simple script (Python or shell) that runs on a computer. For a “production” server, the server should be extremely close to the Amazon Flex Blocks server, which is in an instance of AWS in Ashburn VA. The script logs into your Amazon Flex account, sends a command to check for blocks (the same as your refresh button on your app), decodes the block information, decides which ones to accept, then accept the specific block. All of this can occur within a few tenths of a second. In some warehouses, this process can be too long so additional scripting needs to be done in order to minimize computations and delays to beat out other scripts. Getting blocks in these warehouses can be impossible unless there are more blocks than scripts or that blocks come out last minute, preventing drivers that are not close by to accept them.
The Amazon Flex login information is not just a simple username and password. It is a digital key that is stored on your phone. You will need to set up your phone so that the internet is routed through a proxy server (your production server). The proxy server can then listen to the login command and capture the digital key. It can then be used by your script to log in. While your phone is linked to the proxy server, you can also check for blocks. The proxy server can output this information and show you what is being sent by your phone (refresh blocks) and what is sent by the Amazon Flex server (block information). Some people check this information daily to ensure that no changes are made. If your program responds with information formatted in an old way, Amazon could pick that up and detect that you are using a script.
