Google Extension for Ad Hoc Building / Website Cleaning

To help with the development of  an automatic website scraper, a number of steps can be taken. One of these steps is reducing the noise on the website. Secondly to create an automatic xPath extraction which basically defines the path to a certain element within the website.

I was tasked with developing a Google Extension that automatically removes the noise whilst also automatically calculating the xPaths for all the required fields from within the website. These fields are then passed to a system which then starts the automatic scraping.

Testimonials

BAAM has worked with Dean for the last 2 years. He helped us set up a website for BAAMfest 2015 and it was a great experience. After the festival Dean was more than kind to help us revamp the website and personalise it. After initial brainstorming he successfully translated our sketchy ideas into a vibrant website. He has always made time to accommodate our requests and assist with hiccups. He is very easy to communicate with and is fast responsive. I particularly like his work cause he has a strong understanding of how to illustrate and communicate ideas through design. Last but not least Dean has worked voluntarily with us all this time, which speaks volumes for his ethos and character.
