Joomla / StubHub Scraper Needed
I am looking for someone to code/integrate the following into a Joomla website for me...
I am an affiliate with StubHub.com. I have a website called concertticketschicago.net. I want someone to code something that will scrape the results from the Chicago Concert Tickets section of StubHub and display them on the homepage of my Joomla website.
For instance... If you go to...
[url removed, login to view];searchStr=tickets&pageNumber=1&resultsPerPage=50&searchMode=tickets&channel=1%3BConcert+Tickets&location=666%3BChicago%2C+Illinois&quantity=[url removed, login to view]%3B2+tickets&x=13&y=7
You will notice this is a listing for all Chicago Concert Tickets. I want a script that will scrape those listings and display them on my Joomla website. This scraper/import script can be created in a way that we set a cron job hourly so the joomla site is consistently updated with the latest results from StubHub. I do NOT want to display results from StubHub that say "No Tickets Available".
I am assuming this project will be acomplished by creating a PHP script that will generate an XML file or similar and then we configure Joomla to read this XML file when a user browses to concertticketschicago.com.
When a user clicks one of the links on my website for a concert the user will be redirected to the StubHub website and land ON the landing page for THAT PARTICULAR concert.
This should be a straightforward project for someone. I need to roll out quite a few of these sites in relation to the city so I need something that can be modified by me once coded so I can implement across many sites.
You will be required to create the scraper and modify Joomla to get the site live and running.
1-3 day completion time
Please PM me and tell me how you plan to approach this project.
