Keep track of restaurant openings and closures in the city.

Quirks

  • Zomato does not support HTTP/1.1, so wget can't be used.

Tech

This project uses GNU Parallel, Ruby, Nokogiri, and curl.

Features

  • Keep track of historical data using regularly generated CSV files
  • Does not use the API (since the rate-limit is too low at 1k/day)
    • We need to checkout around 15k restaurant status (closed or not)
  • Keep track of whether restaurant is still alive or not
  • Tweet any restaurant closures (or any new openings)
