It’s Sunday and with it another sequel to our programming series. Last time we built a functional voice assistant Živák, who was smarter than your mom thanks to the connection to Wikipedia, and this time we will steal.
What? Steal? Well, we steal a site you may have visited during May that does not have a machine read API.
We “steal” data from the Doprácenakole.cz website
That site will be doplacenakole.cz and team statistics of colleagues. If you don’t know it, I’ll just remind you that this is a traditional May competition, in which companies from all over the Czech Republic participate, create teams, and those teams compete in the one that will be transported to the workplace more regularly by bus, scooter or bike.
Just to give you an idea, he got involved this year 21,925 corporate athleteswhich is the current record, and participants can record the recorded routes manually or through connected sports applications – for example, their favorite Diet.
Watch the video on how we retrieved team data from the Dprácenakole.cz website. In the article below, we will describe what we needed for this and, of course, the source code will not be missing:
Crush and humiliate colleagues
Although some companies will reward the corporate winner with some kind of reward (our CNC, as will reimburse the best athletes for the entry fee), the main motivation is, of course, the victory within the team and utterly devastating liquidation of opponents for kilometers.
Everyone on the team can see how their team is at any time on the website https://dpnk.dopracenakole.cz/dalsi_clenove_vysledky/which displays a table with basic statistics after logging in.
