Hello,

I know there has been a topic about Mercado Livre, but that was almost 3 years ago so I decided to start a new topic :)

Are the instructions given in that topic still valid? I’d like to try to make JBidWatcher work with Mercado Livre but I have no idea where to start…

I’d be glad to help the project since lots of people use ML here in Brazil :)

Thanks!

Greetings,

Oddly enough the URL construction method I gave before seems to still be valid:

http://www.mercadolivre.com.br/jm/item?site=MLB&id=56065942

Recognition of URLs isn’t as easy because they’ve gone with a much more SEO-ish URL structure (including the product title in the URL), but given an item number, getting to the auction is at least still relatively easy.

That said, depending on what you want to do, I’d try to use ScrubyT to access it first…

The core process is the same, though, yes. I can talk more about that if you’d like…
