Love the tools ability to match entities across a website from your original feature selection.

Also enjoy being informed on how many other users have scraped data from the website your currently visiting - a great way to build a sense of community!

Pros:

An intuitive tool to streamline the data collection experience.

Cons:

Caused my browser to run a little slower, but can be expected when it's dynamically classifying unique features across every website.

Hi Lachlan, thanks for the feedback! Yup, we are still in the process of figuring out how to further reduce the computational load on browsers when in use.
Seems like an interesting product, but I can't even test it privately without paying.
@vertis Hi Luke, yeah we are trying to find a good balance between promoting community sharing and generating enough revenue to cover for server cost, quite similar to the former GitHub model.
tested, it just pull text data, i didnt find any settings to customize data type
@jordanslon Hi Jordan, the current URL for the chrome extension does not yet support the extraction of custom data types. However the required_attribute property within columns clause does allow you to do so. This is the API https://getdata.io/docs/semantic... This is a sample data source that was created today https://getdata.io/data-sources/...
@garyjob and when you're going to add it in extension?
@jordanslon I will add it to the extension once I have figured out a good and simple UI/UX to expose that feature without bloating the current interface. I just noticed that you are a designer. Would be nice if I could get some inputs from you on any UI suggestions you might have. :)
@garyjob when i got free time, i'll do
@jordanslon Thanks Jordan. 😄
