Wikileaks CableGate Processing firstname.lastname@example.org (based on work by email@example.com) used andrew's existing code to start coming up with a generic parser that will scrape data from the cables in HTML form and create python objects. for an example, please see https://gist.github.com/722901 data from typecode's original readme follows the dashed line below. --- Prerequisites: HTTrack (http://www.httrack.com/httrack-3.43-9C.tar.gz) *to update mirror of cablegate site MongoDB (www.mongodb.org) *database to store parsed cables *ouputs json dump Functionality: Will update Cablegate Web Mirror, and pull all existing cables into a MongoDB Collection where their 'Reference ID' is their '_id', and they contain the following properties: 'reference_id','date_time','classification','origin','header','body' Usage: Make sure that mongod is running. The software is configured to access Mongod at it's default location, so change that if necessary. Confirm that httrack and mongoexport are accesable in your PATH. run 'python process_into_mongo.py' after that run 'mongoexport -d wikileaks -c cables -o dump/cables.json' Notes: The Tornado app that is there right now serves no function. To come..?
