Very Dope🚬🚬 I personally use scrapers a lot because it makes everything easier. I like Import.Io and the chrome plugin scraper. So Now... This is your Wolf 🐺 of Wall Street moment. Give the PH community your best pitch. "Sell Me This Scraper" 👩‍🚒

We've been having fun building Kinase over the past few months to help our experts pull content from client websites quickly and easily! We'd love to hear how you might build your own Chrome extensions on top of the framework—feel free to get in touch with us at if you want to chat 😊

Can you automate the scrapes once you map everything?

@wuss Great question! At the moment, we don't do any sort of fancy pattern/collection repetition matching in Kinase. We've got some code that does this internally that, if we figure out how to separate it from the rest of our algorithms, we'll try to get into the open source codebase!

Haha! When I was writing scrapers as freelancer some 7 years ago, I had to produce several hundreds of more or less the same Java programs over a few month. At that time I had exactly the same idea for a Chrome plugin, that would have cut my work by 10X. Unfortunately, I was too lazy to make it happen. Also, I was paid per hour :P I foresee a lot of technical challenges, but great job regardless!
