Saucer

Saucer

This application came out of my own frustration when browsing the massive list of beers available at the Houston Flying Saucer. It was impossible on an iphone.

I decided that this was a good opportunity to learn some new skills in developing a RESTful API and python module for specific HTML scraping.

I developed my own python based API and HTML screen-scraping library to constantly query the main beer listings and update my own local database. This is then served up via my own website.

It also features RSS feeds for the new and retired beers for the week.

I'm also in the process of developing a native iphone application that utilizes my own custom API to improve upon the functionality provided by the current website.
