Hi, need to build a website scrapper, preferably using PHP (but python, js, jquery, view or any other platform is fine). Ideally, it will be object oriented code, where there will be 3 inputs and 1 output in form of multi-dimensional array.
input examples-zip code, category for search and url for website.
output will be getting as much info as possible..like name, phone, email, description, job, pictures etc.
Websites are not easy, they need several forms to be filled out (for example, what is your name or what service do you need ?) with several prompts before actual listing of service providers is shown to user. So your scraping techniques need to include building form queries and posting dynamically as part of scraping. There might be IP address check/blocks to prevent automated bots/scraping activity so will need to use proxy. (one of input could be $proxy_ip).
Please message with "scrapper" in your response to discuss details.
