Initially we wanted to create a site that would display the best tech deals from 10 different websites

We only managed to write three scripts that would take deals from Box, Overclockers and Currys,scrape them and put them into a CSV file. This is shown in the video

The scripts scrape the name, price, description, image and link to every product on the deals page of the site.

We had issues where we couldn't get javascript to read from the CSV, which is why nothing is on the site.

We may try to add to this in the future, possibly using a server so that the website can run the scripts itself.

This was our team's first Hackathon
