Hello, I'm in need of a Chrome Extension developer, to create for me a Base Chrome Extension.
I do not need a fully complete, professional UI extension.
I can do most, or the finishing portions of this extension myself, as I'm experienced with code.
What I mostly want is someone who can give me a head-start on this project, due to my limited time available.
I haven't attempted to create a Chrome Extension before, but I should be able to complete the task, after being given a framework to work with.
The extension will scrape some basic data, from a Social Network site (eg, Facebook, Twitter, G+, etc...).
It is one specific and popular social network (it doesn't need to be flexible with multiple sites), which I will reveal upon initial contact with applicants.
The extension will run once the user allows it to, on a specified profile URL.
It will slowly gather data such as Likes and Re-shares on each post of that profile.
Specifically, the aim is to collect lists of who liked/shared/commented on the profiles posts.
I simply need the count/users, not any other data about the post.
This will be stored locally, and used to generate a list of "Most Engaged Users",
so in the end, the user of this Chrome Extension will be able to see (sorted) who engaged the most with their posts, historically.
I would like you, the applicant, to develop a Chrome extension which does these basic tasks.
I can already see that this data is openly visible in the site's HTML, and it's not difficult to identify, so I don't believe that there should be challenges in scraping the data.
I also understand about social network limits, so I'm completely fine if this can run slowly in the background.
The extension doesn't attempt anything that isn't already available in HTML to casual users.
Depending on how we move along with the project, and your interest also, I could consider paying you additionally to complete the entire Chrome Extension project.
But as mentioned, my idea is really to have someone give me a head-start, building this functionality, then I will afterwards continue to develop it into a complete product.
Thank you, and kind regards!
