Hi mates,
 
Just want to clarify on the subject if flipkart.com provides any API to use their product details in a customized manner. Please tell me if any other way is there to pull the product details from flipkart.com easily.
 

 

Best Regards,
Sunny

I think there is no API provided by flipkart.
But Flipkurl[^] is a php - curl based library to access the contents of flipkart.com site, login into it, search book listings, add books to cart, move books from to wishlist, read contents of cart, etc.
 
You can email a contact at flipkart and ask if they expose any APIs that you can use (they may charge for this, not sure).
As there are sites like http://www.indiabookstore.net/[^] and http://www.mysmartprice.com/[^], so they must be doing something to get the data from different websites.
 
Alternate method
If they don't expose APIs then you can go for asp.net screen scraping[^].
 
Some good articles for asp.net screen scraping are as follows.
1. Screen Scraping with C# for ASP.NET[^].
2. C# Scraping HTML Links[^].
3. .NET Screen Scraping in depth[^].
4. Screen Scraping in ASP.NET[^].
 
Good luck. Smile | :)
Thanks...

I've given a try to Flipkurl, but it didn't solve the purpose. It allows to search books what I want is to fetch all the book details available through the website to have a customized view. Anyway, thanks a lot for your valuable time and response, I really appreciate it.

Yes, that has some limited features.
Anyway just mail flipkart people or go for Scrapping.
Best of luck...
