Diggernaut is a cloud based service for web scraping, data extraction and other ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) tasks. If you are a reseller of goods and your supplier does not let you have their data in a suitable format, such as excel or csv, you will have to manually retrieve data from their website. All you need to do is to create a digger, a tiny robot that can do web scraping on your behalf and extract data from websites for you, normalize it and save data to the cloud. Once its done, you can download it in CSV, XLS, JSON format or even retrieve it using our Rest API. If you dont have any programming skills, you can use Excavator tool to build configuration for your scrapers. Its simple point & click application where you select what data you want to extract and set how you want to have it in your output data structure. We have video lessons explaining how to use it on our sandbox website. If you are a programmer or web-developer, you can use meta-language to build configuration for a digger. This way you can solve really complex data extraction tasks. We have comprehensive meta-language documentation which helps you to get used into it; also we have many posts on our blog where we show how you can use different meta-language functions to solve different real cases.
