We generally focus on tasks that can be performed in the browser or with serverless scripts. Other types of projects that we are more than happy to help you with are, for example, uploading data to a database, data transformations or connecting various API endpoints together and storing data. Also, keep in mind that we offer proxies and our proxy component. If you would like to create an e-shop or custom CRM system, you can certainly submit the request, but the chances are higher for other types of projects.
What should the configuration do?
The most important thing for us is the description of the project, especially when the project doesn't fit into the categories of automation or data extraction.
A good description is crucial for a proper price estimation and also to understand the project in general. Try to provide screenshots with your description, or try to record your screen and share the content with us so we know what the project is about. (guide for Mac,guide for PC).
Name of your project (optional):
API integration with DB upload
Please provide a detailed description of your project. Imagine you're explaining the steps to a person who will perform them manually:
We use https://openweathermap.org/api for weather forecasts and https://fixer.io/ for exchange rates which we need to insert hourly to our information system. Right now we have an assistant who is doing this manually and we would like to automate this. We can share with you testing API tokens to check the endpoints that we are interested in. With the downloaded data, we would like you to create this object:
"date": "Wed May 29 2019 07:11:22 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time)",
"city": "Los Angeles, Kalifornie, United states of america",
"currency": "usd to eur",
Our database is Mongo DB, and we can also share testing credentials for that later on.
