✓ RPA Challenge 31 - Recipe Ideas


Wellcome back on another RPA Challenge

For this week I prepared super tasty challenge, so hope you will enjoy it!

We will be using a data scraping and practice our skills with working with data tables, dictionaries and arrays/lists. It depends how creative you will be.

What is the goal of your robot?

  • Lets you type what would you like to cook

  • Go to the page with recipes

  • Type here your input

  • Scrape first 5 recipes (also with their URL)

  • Throw an Input dialog where you can choose which of these 5 recipes you would like to try

  • According to your choice, it goes to the specific recipe URL

  • Get Ingredients what you will need and save in the word/txt/save to clipboard/…
    (so it will be convinient to create your shopping list)

How to participate :question:

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)
  • share into a comments the most tasty recipe that you found :stuck_out_tongue:

And fell free to ask me if you have some additional questions.
(maybe I will have some hints for you)

First three correct, original solvers earn 3 robopoints, next get 1 robopoint.
I will hold a leaderboard with your score and update it.

The challenge deadline is 22. 5. 2022 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 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.

Hurry up and dive into it! :pizza: :avocado:
