Hi Renoir,


I don’t know what this site/utility could do for us. Scraping data? We already read the HTML tables and get a reasonable JSON (surely needs improvement, but I doubt this site/utility would get better data out of it). Running scripts? We can do that on our own.


Let me know if I misunderstood something. :)

Hi Pat, David,

I'd like to point out some tool that might be useful to us.

A site/utility called ScraperWiki [0] could be used to host and run publicly import scripts. We do not need scraperwik to run them --we will most likely keep a github project for them anyway-- but can be used to run the scripts for us on a regular basis.

Anybody thought about it?
