I put the following together to scrape experience, level and writeups off my profile page and store it in a text file on my computer, to record my progress through the Monastery. A scheduled task runs this once a day.

use strict; use warnings; use LWP::Simple; use URI::URL; my $date=`ECHO %DATE:~10,4%%DATE:~4,2%%DATE:~7,2%`; # YYYYMMDD my $url = url(''); my $content = get($url); $content =~ s/\cJ//g; $content =~ s/\cM//g; my ($experience, $level, $posts) = ($content =~ /Experience:\D+(\d+).+ Level:.+([A-Z][a-z]+\s+\(\d+\)).+ Writeups:.+>(\d+)</x); open my $ofh, '>>','perl_xp.dat'; printf $ofh "%d,%d,%d,%s\n",$date,$experience,$posts,$level; close($ofh);

There is probably a way to do this in Javascript that could be included in the Free Nodelet, but that's beyond my skill level.


Improved version here.
