We need a developer who can write a small script (2 scripts with 1 data element differences explained below) to extract the list of search results from a website. The end goal of the script is for us to run it on a weekly basis to validate if any data is changing from this website.
The basic workflow of Python Script will be as follows:
• On the Website, Enter the "City" field (there are a total of 12 cities we will provide) and "Type of Program” field =”Child Care Centre”. Note that there may be more cities added in the future so we would need explanation on how to add more cities into the script if needed in the future.
• The search result would produce listing of School names. Access the link to each school
• Scrape all of school listing details page Fields on this page. Each listing page has 11 fields that are needed to be scrapped and there would be a total of about 315 rows produced from results on the 12 cities
• Insert into an Excel CSV file the following:
- The 11 Column headings
- Populate all the data for the 11 columns. There would be about 315 rows generated from this
• The CSV file produced should list the rows alphabetically based on one of the 11 fields (field
name to be provided later)
A second exactly the same script as above is needed except in this case, “Type of Program” field=”Home Child Care Agency”. The rows generated in this file would only be about 20.
The script should be able to be run in a Python installed environment either by a Cron job or on demand.
