Our mission is to provide the Web community with a simple Web automation environment (finally) allowing everyone to harvest data elements, documents or media from virtually any public (and legal) source of content. The technology is open and will eventually provide an API and wizards to build simple and efficient tools.
The OutWit Platform is composed of a kernel that contains a large library of data recognition and extraction functions, around which an unlimited number of original applications —outfits— can be developed, using the kernel's features for specific applications.
An outfit has its own user interface, features, scripts and directory of Web sources. Some will be developed by us, but most, hopefully, will be developed by our users who have a specific need or passion.
Our first application, OutWit Hub, is a multi-purpose harvester, in which we have gathered the largest possible number of features, hoping to cover a very large spectrum of needs. The Hub has now been around for many years and has become an indispensable and flexible tool for non-technical users as well as IT professionals who master programming and yet understand that php is not always the fastest route to efficient data extraction.
Beside the Hub, the purpose of our technology is also to build a whole collection of simple, one-function applications like the ones we have already released: OutWit Images, OutWit Docs and Email Sourcer.
The applications are countless; only you can steer us in the right direction(s).
