Python Data Mining And Web Scraping Using Scrapy

We are looking for a skilled Python programmer with knowledge of web scraping and data mining.

The project aims to write a web crawler, also known as spider, using the Scrapy framework (see http://scrapy.org/). The spider will extract information from a consumer website, such as product price, name and stock availability.

We provide examples of existing production-ready and fully working spiders. We will also provide a clear specification of what we expect the spider to extract from the website. You are expected to write clean and well-structured code.

Solid experience of Python is essential. A solid understanding of Javascript, DOM traversing and XPaths is essential. Experience with Scrapy is a large plus but not essential.

It takes between two and four hours to write a spider.

Successful completion of project is guaranteed to lead to a long-time project.

Web Spider App

Im in need of a web spider with the following features

1. Multi Threaded

2. Ability to import large lists of domains to check (up to 2 gig txt files)
2.1 Ability to start at a user determined line in the imported file.
For example if a file has 10,000,000 entries then Id like to be able to start it at entry 9,000,000 if I so desire.

3. The spider must be customizable to search certain folders on sites from a list. For example if I input
/forum
/forums
/boards
/board
into the "folders" section of the app the spider should search like this.
domain.com
domain.com/forum
domain.com/forums
domain.com/boards
domain.com/board
domain2.com
domain2.com/forum
domain2.com/forums
domain2.com/boards
domain2.com/board

4. The script should also support searching set subdomains of imported domains. For example if I input
forums.
boards.
into the "subdomain" section of the app the spider should search like this.
forums.domain.com
boards.domain.com
forums.domain2.com
boards.domain2.com
all subdomains should be exempt from subfolders checking mentioned in (3) above.

5. The spider must be customizable to find footprints within the code of the pages it scans.
For example if I input
phpbb
"powered by phpbb"
"Powered by vBulletin"
"Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd."
into the footprints then it should search for any page that includes any of the above phrases or keywords.

6. All negitive results should be exported to a "Notfound" file

7. All positive results (IE – found one of the set footprints) should be exported to a "Found" file

8. Should any "root" domain and/or subdomain return a 404 error the script should skip running through all the folder searches. For example, if
domain.com returns a 404 error there is no need to check
domain.com/forum
domain.com/forums
domain.com/boards
domain.com/board
etc

9. The spider should be capable of using proxies, it should check a preset .txt file every few minutes for updated proxies.

If you intend to place a bid on this project please include what platform/language you intend to use and verify that you are capable of writing a MULTI-THREADED application that will meet all the requirements along with whatever experience that you have that makes you right for this job.
I prefer a windows based application but am open to serverside applications as well.

Website Spider, Server Admin And Basic Webpage

We would like to find a programmer or team of programmers than can help us build and install a spider on a dedicated server. Once installed and running, we need this person to monitor the progress of the spider and then optimize both the spider code as well as server configurations to ensure the most data is collected in the fastest amount of time. We also need a very basic webpage to control the spider and for reporting.

For the spider:
1. we give it a place to start (e.g., dmoz.org)
2. it reads the web page
3. it collects information that we are looking for
4. info we want to keep is stored in a mysql db
5. it follows a link on the page to another page/website
6. go to step 2

The spider needs to travel around the Internet in the same way a search engine spider would. However, we are not attempting to index the entire web! Well explain more to the finalists, but the basic idea is that we are hunting for specific info and went we find it, we save it. The info we dont car about never needs to be stored.

For the server:
We plan to get a dedicated server at a host provider. An example could be GoDaddy, but well probably go with someone smaller and less expensive. We will rent enough hardware to develop and test the spider. But, we understand that a spider like this will gobble up a lot of bandwidth, processor time and storage space quickly. So, realistically we will eventually need to build out the hardware in order to support full production runs.

We need you to be able to handle installing the spider on the server as well as evaluate the best way to adjust the spider code and server settings to maximize its performance.

For the Website:
We will need a secure webpage that we can log in to that will support:
1. Entering the place the spider should start
2. Possibly controlling number of spiders/threads
3. Starting and stopping the spider
4. Reporting on spider progress
5. Reporting on information collected

Please use "SPIDERMAN" at the beginning of your response so we know you read the entire description.

thanks,
Rich

Website Spider

I need a spider to go to certain directories and extract certain information. The spider needs to be a desktop tool. It basically:

1. Goes to a directory.
2. Puts certain words in the directory.
3. Gets the results and brings certain of these results into an Excel file.

This needs to be done for a list of directories. I will give full details of what the scrip needs to do (by PM) to those of you who bid and who are capable of doing it. Then you can requote this job with full information of what I am looking for.
Please put in your response

Spider With A Double Randomize Feature, .NET Website

I need a spider written. This spider will go on a windows server for a site written in .NET. You will need to schedule it to run multiple times daily. It will crawl 3 sites about 2-3 times a day. It will put the results of the crawl into a temporary table. Then, there will be a randomizer that will publish a random number of entries (randomizer 1) from the temporary table into the live site. The idea is that my site should be updating 24/7 and every 10-15 minutes and to simulate manual updating, so there should be a function that will count how many entries are in the temporary table and publish to live site as many as needed at random intervals from 10 to 15 minutes (randomizer 2). I already have this spider in PHP for another similar site and can provide this code to you. This spider should have a safety feature where it wont crawl any links or add any HTML text other than line breaks, so all other HTML should be parsed out.

Please note: you will be responsible for putting all the scheduled tasks and creating all the necessary things on the actual server, to which I will give you access.

Ask me and I can PM you my site name and the sites which you will need to crawl.

Mp3 Spider/crawler Script

You might have seen a lot of job offers requesting the same, but here I go again.
I need a Mp3 Crawler/Spider to be scripted that would crawl websites recursively and add all audio files it finds to a database. The audio links must be added in the database along with related keywords(calculated by looking at the keyword density on the page where it was found, ID3 tags, Title of page etc..basically a fine tuned algorithm to return best results!).

The database must also contain the id3 information for the file, must work efficiently and fast as it grows..so I am not sure which database would be best for such a thing. So basically, I need a script like abmp3.com, mp3raid.com, beemp3.com etc.

The script must also have the ability to check the links in the database and ensure the files still exist.
The script would be hosted on a dedicated server, so server resources shouldnt be a concern, but I still expect the script to be perfectly optimized, commented, indented and easy to extend(multiple databases, more features etc).

People having previous experience will be preferred, will also require a portfolio or examples of previous jobs.

Help To Chose A Spider Program Working With Proxies

I am willing to extract all the companies pages under linkedin, their URL starts for all of them as: www.linkedin.com/companies/

I already tried scrapping by login in with PHP but that does not work because linkedin closes the accounts and sessions coming from a given IP after too many requests.

I would need a "spider" program or a script working with proxies to download all these pages (about 1m pages) locally (HTML only is ok or even anything lighter). No need to be logged-in to do that. I do not know spider programs well but my assumption is that they can download all the pages without necessarily knowing previously the link of the page – or am I mistaken?

I am looking for someone to help me set it up. If that is something you can do, please
i. Let me know how you plan to do that
ii. Send me in a file with 100 companies pages
iii. Do you think that what I want to do makes sense at all or there is no way this is reasonable to download so many pages? Can a spider program download pages without previuously knowing their links?

Please do not bid without sending me a PM with a reponse to these questions – otherwise I will not consider the bid. Budget is 50 USD

Download All Companies Pages From Linkedin / Linkedin Spider

I am looking for someone to help me use a spider program to download all the company pages of linkedin. They are at the following root: http://www.linkedin.com/companies/

An example is the following company: http://www.linkedin.com/companies/peperoni-mobile-%26-internet-software-gmbh?trk=co_search_results&goback=.cps_1283699282151_1

As it will be a heavy download, the spider program will probably have to use proxies so that linkedin does see what is happening. The script/program can be hosted locally or on a server (I have a server on OVH).

If that helps and if it is not possible to download ALL the company profiles in Linkedin (more than 2 million entries), I can provide a list of all the URLS I am interested in. (around 500,000).

The software/script must be easy to use and I must be able to run it by myself in the future if required.When bidding on the project, please say how you plan to do it (language or program you will use, use of proxies or not, etc.)

Budget is 50 USD everything included with 100% pay on delivery and I want this to be done ASAP. To prove that is something you can do please send a file with 10,000 linkedin companies. Please do not bid to this without providing a sample.

Thanks a lot,

Ronan
