Hello everyone.

After some exchanges with @kinderminder, I learned that the Automatio project will go through a complete rewrite to make it production ready. So I have a few questions about this:

  • In terms of resources, how much money would we need to start and then launch such a project? I assume it's going to be a ballpark figure, it's alright ;)
  • What would use the money for? Developers time? Marketing?
  • Which technology, outside of Puppeteer, Node.JS , will be used for this project? Is it still up for debate?
  • How many people are ready to work for the rewrite at this moment?

Well, for now, that's all I have :D

It really looks like an interesting and challenging project. I'm really looking forward to start working on it.

Do you have a strategy to raise that kind of money? Some GofundMe or some crowdfunding tool? I would personally be okay to get started as a volunteer. If there are some aspects I could take care of in the mean time... Just ask away, I do have some free time ;)

    There is potential investor, which wanna invest ~ $10k for phase 1 development.

      However, I was also thinking about crowd funding on Kickstart, since we have ~2k subscribers and could reach more people

        Not sure how that would go honestly, but I am interested to try it out.

          However, even crowdfunding would require some investment in terms of creating a good looking video showing the prototype

            1. The tech stack will not change. We will mostly use puppeteer, node.JS, bull queue, redis, mongo etc. for scraping part.

              Hey I am fullstack meteor dev looking for opportunities!! I know react and material ui! Also apollo! Even I have done an 'url to screenshot app' with meteor and puppeteer!
