I have a website that I am looking to scrape and perform actions depending on the data that is scraped.
The process will be:
1 - Login to the site
The site is secured by a username and password but also an additional security question of which there are three questions / answers. e.g. Q. What is your pets name? A. Bingo
The site uses HTTPS.
2. Once authenticated, there is a main screen showing all the auctions that are currently live with their end times and price.
This needs to be scraped so that logic can be applied later.
3. In the last few seconds of the auction a decision needs to be made on whether to bid. This will be determined by the auction current price and a predetermined logic
e.g. If price for product A is < 100 then bid (note there are two variables - price and rate - I will discuss this in detail with the freelancer)
The proposal should be:
Cloud hosted (if possible) - not a deal breaker
Limit the number of calls to the website - i.e. if there is no auction closing within next few hours then don't refresh data ever minute
Auditable - output the decisions made to a log
Capable of working in 'test' mode - i.e. state what action would have been taken
When replying to this, please provide:
- Time to deliver
- Technology used
- Details of similar work undertaken
