I am a vb.net coder with 16 years experience and i want you to make a vb.net or c# software due to lack of time. i am looking for someone to hire multiple times for years to come, that can code at an ok price for me, so this is not a one time project, if you can do it, you will be hired again by me in the future. as a test,i want to make a software for myself (because i lack the time) that scrapes from a website, price etc to an excel file. this is the site, you can right click and translate from romanian to your language in your browser. it must be done in C# or VB.net. i am not interested in python or others. it's important that you know regex to extract the info details. [login to view URL] these are the things that have to get scraped. [login to view URL] and the links to each ad and then go to the link and scrape more details [login to view URL] while getting the pictures of the ad. use regex to get the details from the pages. get all the details on both the search page and the ad page (with the price history and map if you can, if not, it's ok without too). after putting the details each in a row in excel,the software should make a screenshot of the whole ad page if possible(if not, it's ok), the details at "istoric pret" ,history price are optional also. the software should be able to run in the background minimized without using keyboard and mouse. it should put the whole source code of each page in the last column of the excel file. i must be able to schedule scraping every x days so it would start by itself and scrape again the prices for the links of each ad and put it in a column if it is different than it was x days ago(also add the date when that new price was scraped). write the word car as your first word in your bid so i know you read this. from the column on the right of each ad where prices from other sites appear, those prices should be put in columns along with the link to the external site. please bid with the lowest amount you could do this project. it must be made in such a way that it will allow me to put in more websites and regex keys made by me. this is the actual interface it will have [login to view URL] and this an example of how it would work. similar but with more info (almost all the info without the map part) from the description page of each ad [login to view URL] it should able to handle more projects/sites in the future. more like this [login to view URL] .the workflow is that 1. i click in the first listbox "project name" [login to view URL] the links of that project appear in the second textbox [login to view URL] software applies prefix and suffix to each line in the textbox, then goes in those links and scrapes using surface column [login to view URL] surface column has a checked item, then it will go in the links of that column, and scrape using the deeper column regex list. the general browsing function of the scraper would be like: [login to view URL] the X (any url) in a csv [login to view URL] firefox "file .... macro=browse1" [login to view URL] vision would read the url from the csv, browse to it in the background, then export the source code in another csv [login to view URL] the webpage
so the software must use a function that uses ui vision to browse. ui vision exports the source code of the webpage in a file, then the software gets it from there you can use inside the software webview2 or chromium driver to navigate only as a mirror to ui vision, the browser inside the software interface will be only for showing purposes, to show me where ui vision browser is. it will be just a mirror. because in the future i will use the ui vision script to further give login commands. it should not have visible windows popping up, everythings must be done in the background. if the software is not according to specifications i reserve the right to not pay any of the sum of the project. coder must allow me 1-2 weeks to test
