API, RSS and Web Scraping Scripts

Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.

Job Description

I need a developer to help me create web scraping scripts and interface with APIs on an ongoing basis. I have three projects that I need to start on right now (thought there will be more later):

(1) I want to monitor certain items for sale on rubylane.com (using webscraping) and ebay.com (requires using ebay's API). If an item is sold or the price changes, I want to be notified. The ideal output would be RSS/XML.

(2) I want to monitor certain sellers on rubylane.com (using webscraping) and ebay.com (using ebay's API). Anytime a seller adds a new item for sale, I want to be notified. Again, the ideal output would be RSS/XML.

(3) I want to monitor Craigslist daily for new items that match certain search terms and display those new items in an administrative interface.

(3) I prefer someone know how to use Yahoo Pipes, so they can easily work with RSS feeds.

I need someone's help to spec these out and then build them. If you can help me, please write "ENTERPRISE" in your application so I know that you read this.

PHP or Python are ok.
