Building web bots, spiders, scrapers, etc. is a hobby of mine.

  • Bots - contains a summary of different bots that I've built. Mainly twitter bots, but some other bots as well.

Scrapers are lots of fun. They basically automate interaction with the web, allowing you to programmatically visit pages, extract content, push buttons, submit forms, and so on.

Words Words Words is a scraper/bot that tags word etymologies in Gutenberg e-books. This project used a web scraper to look up word etymologies in an online dictionary, parse the results, and color-code the resulting word based on its root language.
