I need a Ruby and/or a Python programmer to develop a script which takes API's from several major open source project hosting sites such as Google Code and SourceForge and extract the projects from the sites and enter them into a MySQL database. (You won't be required to develop the database itself, just the code to manipulate it) Then I'll also need a web crawler which takes a user-defined website address and with a few options such as a file extension wildcard, and page keywords (keyword examples: software title, description, downloaded count, ext.), crawl the website until it reaches a download page, then extract the defined page keywords and the file with the defined wildcard and add the keywords and file location to a MySQL database.
An experienced programmer could probably complete this script in less than a week. Also if you believe writing this kind of application would perform much better in another language, than please let me know. I look forward to working with you.
