We have our Craigslist scraper up and running! Things are moving a little faster than expected.

It’s a simple php script that scrapes the XML data from Craigslist and stores it on our server. This lets us get around the crossdomain policy that would otherwise prevent us from using AJAX to get at this data.

Once we have the data, we parse through it with some cool JavaScript regular expressions, and BAM. We now have price, title, and a link to the original post.

Nate’s been working on the logo, and likes what he has so far.
