Somehow I'm out of sync with the week numbers & homework.

This week we have been working with data and my initial PComp concept was enhanced by data from Amazon. Unfortunately Amazon murdered their Wishlist API [sure can't imagine why, eyeroll] and the folks at Wishpot wouldn't respond to my emails for an API key [jerks!]. So I thought I would try data scraping.

Processing doesn't do this by itself, so I imported the jsoup library and got to work. I was able to extract the name, price & even an image of each of the items on my wish list! I'm kind of redirecting away from wishlist to a curated selection of items for PComp, but this was a good exercise anyway!
