= Book-Search - Search online bookstores == An Overview Book-Search is a ruby script to search multiple online bookstores in India. The original aim of this project was to find the lowest price among all the stores. The current script just displays the results with prices and links to the sites. Price-based listing is on the way! == Supported sites * Bookadda.com * Infibeam.com * Flipkart.com * TheStorez.com * Indiaplaza.in == Dependencies Book-search uses the Hpricot HTML parser. http://github.com/whymirror/hpricot The script uses screen scraping - so it's totally dependent on the stores' site's search results page structure. It'll break if the latter changes. == Immediate ToDos * Price based rankings, with lowest on top. * Split the code into separate modules, so that bookstores can be added and removed easily.
