PHP Web Scraper
A client had a need where they wanted to search a county real estate website and find all foreclosed properties, capture the property’s data, and then push the data to a database where all of the properties would be indexed by their real estate id or REID. The PHP scraper was built to elegantly traverse the DOM and then store each of the properties' attributes in to an array.
I used this array to push the data to the database, and built out a custom GUI where a user could view all of the foreclosed properties from the client’s site.
