I needed to write code that would allow me to harvest images from a site where the images were displayed 10 per page over n number of pages. I wanted to set it up so that I could start it and let it run over time and harvest images. This immediately meant I’d be working with PHP and jQuery using AJAX. I’ve written another post titled Web Scraping Using PHP and jQuery about this type of AJAX script and I needed to use what I’d learned here to implement this new scraping engine.
The reason I’m writing this code is so that we can start a few studies on selfies.
