At BARKER, we revamped Slimfast's entire brand, including their website. We were not granted access to the existing website code or assets, and we were on a tight timeline of about a month.
In order to accelerate the build process for the new site, instead of using placeholder content, I wrote a few scraping tools using Python and Selenium / PhantomJS. These scripts allowed me to scrape content and images for the existing products and recipes into JSON files. I used these files as a datasource initially while I built out the static templates, then imported the data to MySQL when the initial Laravel build was ready.
