Unfortunately the server cluster did some weird stuff while I was at work. I just got it all fixed this morning. Should be working now.

I can't remember what status code, but there was no useful error message.

That's all part of scraping/crawling. It doesn't make a difference in this case. In fact, I was tapping into the Woolworths' API directly...

It stopped working altogether. I'm quite sure they outsource their crawler blocking to another company. I believe they do IP-based blocking...

If it could be integrated with Price Hipster, then yes. Price Hipster actually can already crawl BigW and Woolworths' websites. It's just...

The amount of time I've been able to spend on it has been put towards maintaining it and keeping it running rather than new features. I...

Dumped? There are still hundreds of stores on Price Hipster. Over time more are added and some are removed. It's the way things go.

There is now a product showing up for me, but only one. For some reason for the past week or so the Coles website has been failing to serve...

Thanks. It looks like they've messed up their product feed and all URLs are incorrect. I've removed Bing Lee from Price Hipster and reached...

Officeworks hasn't been there for many years I think. You're the first person to even notice Harvey Norman is missing 😅 JB Hi-Fi is...

Yeah it probably sucks on a laptop. It doesn't work very well on my Surface Pro 4. Funny how a device designed specifically to run Windows...

They are very aggressive about blocking IP addresses. They haven't even bothered to reply when I've reached out to them in numerous...

There are multiple crawls per day and a database is kept by Price Hipster.
13/09/2021 - 12:21
Unfortunately the landscape has changed quite a bit since I wrote that reply. Pretty much all retailers have made changes to their websites...
13/09/2021 - 12:19
Yup. The search database has been having issues for the last couple of weeks and getting worse. I'm trying to track down the problem....
03/09/2021 - 17:04
Do you mean how the prices are obtained or how they are recorded and queried?

If it was a green capsicum they won't germinate. There's a small chance they won't grow true to the parent, but it's unlikely in this case....

Thanks for following up. Are you referring to an app? What benefit do you imagine an app would bring over the mobile website?
22/08/2021 - 13:07
Unfortunately not

This is definitely an issue that needs resolving. I have been stretched pretty thin after moving to a new house/city late last year so I've...

That's correct. I didn't know about this. I'll look into integrating it. Thanks for mentioning it.
12/08/2021 - 06:36
Thanks, Mr Alligator. I'm glad it's useful to you. I'll keep an eye on Decathlon.
03/08/2021 - 19:52
I don't think they're doing it on purpose. They probably actually believe their UI isn't bad.
26/07/2021 - 20:43
Not at the moment. They've recently made an update to their website and it commits some pretty terrible usability sins. There is now no way...
26/07/2021 - 10:27
I removed them because they weren't keeping their product feed up to date and the prices ended up being incorrect. I've contacted them...
