What basically i'm looking for is a piece of software that can perform multiple searches on the site www.gemm.com. I would like to feed it with a list of band names or labels and i'd like to get all the results at once in an easy, browsable form.
I don't think this should be that hard for a good programmer. For now i'm just interested in what such project would cost, but i've been thinking about it for a long time. If i get an interesting offer i might accept it.
Some more info:
I'm using very often the page [url removed, login to view]
The field that are of interest for me are the **Artist, Media, Label** and **Release Number**.
I've been trying to find a way to programmaticaly select 45 or LP, enter a Label or Artist Name, then browse results, than going back, entering another Label name and so on. This is very time consuming to do manually as i've got long lists of Band names and Labels + release #s that will most of the time yeld very few results.
Usual searches would be like:
Media= 45 && Label: somelabel
Media= LP && Artist: someartist
The software i'd like would accept as input, txt, csv, xls, or whatever, let me select which in which fields to put the input data and then batch search the site for every word(s) on the list.
It should be be presenting results of the combined searches just like an usual search on gemm, so that i can check details for every single result (price, record conditions etc..)
I don't think gemm has got a search API, so it should work as a 'fake browser' layer, simulate browser requests and ideally generate an html of the results.
If you need any more info just ask.
