This time, we will work on bots that interact with this Community Forum!
This is an easy Challenge that can be done even by total beginners!
Goal of the Challenge
- Take this list of topics as an input: https://community.robotict.com/latest
- Have your robot scrape all the details:
Name, Number of Replies, Number of Views, Last Activity
- Convert Last Activity (It is displayed in Days Ago, and latest topics have the Exact date) to a format of YYYY-MM-DD for each topic.
- Save to Excel/CSV file.
Scraping of the details should be easy. Conversion to standardized date format might be a bit tricky but I believe you can fight this challenge!
How to participate?
When you are happy with your robot:
- send .xaml (or another source) file + Excel with results as a private message directly to me (click my profile picture → Message)
First three correct, original solvers earn 3 robopoints, next get 1 robopoint.
I will hold a leaderboard with your score and update it. Those on top positions will be badged by a special challenger badge
The challenge deadline is 1. 8. by the end of the day. You can still submit your projects after the deadline but you cannot earn robopoints. A new challenge is published every week or 2 weeks so don’t worry if you did not catch this one. Keep in mind, your submitted files may be published after the deadline so others can learn from solutions.
