Hi, my name is Jerry, I live in Santa Clara, CA.
I play GD near 2 years, but only now become a forum member.
I enjoy fishing, photography and playing games.
My favorite games are GD, WoW and FIFA
I’m wondering if anybody knows of the best or simplest way to extract data from a web site and then take that data and say send it to a serial port, what can you say about this https://mydataprovider.com/tools/.
Obviously there’s a lot of applications for mining real time data from websites and using it to control various things.
An example is to look at the BOM website and look at the various weather stations looking for approaching wind gust and then controlling an external device by either
sending values to an external microcontroller to make the decision and control the hardware or the PC making the decision and sending the immediate command to the device.
The other thought was to reassemble the data and then send it to another third party web page.
It’s not just the BOM, that’s just one example. There are quite a few pages I’d like to mine real time data from.
