Veracross Axiom Web Scraper

A command line utility to print/save Veracross reports without logging in to Axiom. This tool allows someone to save a report from Axiom's workspace at a specified interval(see config file sample).

How it works:

Print json output to screen.

vquery -config config.toml -report 12345

Not specifying a report parameter will save the reports specified in config.toml to a destination on disk. The utility will run continuously and refresh the report at the interval specified in the config(in minutes).

vquery -config config.toml

Saving a CSV file

To save as a CSV, you can combine the json output with additional command like tools, like jq and json2csv

Example: The example below will save report #163998 as a csv file, using the person_id, first_name, last_name and email_1 fields in the report.

vquery -config config.toml -report 163998 | jq -c '.[]' | json2csv -k person_id,first_name,last_name,email_1 > people.csv

We can do further work like, sorting the results alphabetically by last_name first.

vquery -config config.toml -report 163998 | jq -c '.[]' |json2csv -k person_id,first_name,last_name,email_1 | sort -k 3,3 -t,

Use as a Go Library

If you'd like to use the code as a Go library to extend this proggram, the documentation is available on godoc

package main

func main() {
    // Create a new http client logged into axiom.
	client, err := axiom.NewClient(username, password, school)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}

    // the JSON output of the axiom report will be saved to 
    // the resp.Body
    resp, err := client.Report(reportID)
    if err != nil {
        //handle err
    }
	defer resp.Body.Close()
    // Print response to stdout
    io.Copy(os.Stdout, resp.Body)
}
