KickScraper

A utility for scraping backing information from a KickStarter project and automatically messaging backers with additional information. This utility was written to funnel data from the SparkFun National Tour KickStarter Campaign to the sparkfun.com hosted Voting System.

Requirements

  • nodejs (latest stable)
  • zombie node module
  • mongodb node module
  • cli-color node module

Getting Started

First, install the latest stable version of nodejs, clone the KickScraper repo, and install the node modules.

$ git clone git@github.com:sparkfun/KickScraper.git
$ cd KickScraper
$ npm install zombie
$ npm install mongodb
$ npm install cli-color

Then, make a copy of the default config file and create a symlink called 'config.js' that points to it.

$ cp default.js myconfig.js
$ ln -s myconfig.js config.js

Finally, modify the exports.accounts object in myconfig.js to match your account info.

Starting the scraper

$ ./kickscraper
