craigslist Data Mining Tool

Date of completion: 2013.02.28


This tool was designed to scan craigslist websites across North America looking through an arbitrary set of categories and emailing the listings for each to an arbitrary list of addresses.

This project started as a short exercise using VBScript. Some time after completion, I started using a MacBook almost exclusively (just ’cause) and moved into web development. This lead to wanting the tool to run on my Mac, so I converted the project to PHP.

Someday, I might throw a front-end on it…
