Hi,

  Glad you like it :).

  The crawler is heavily specialized to crawl the specifically mentioned hosting sites and to collect very specific infos (to keep the whole thing simple). Although it does collect infos about every component and only displays (and regularly updates) the Erlang ones, since it's not a generic crawler, you couldn't really use it for anything else. For this reason we chose not to make is open source.

Have a nice day,
  Peter

Hi Péter ! 


Excellent intiative. 








We are proud to announce the Trapexit project crawler: a web crawler 
to go through popular open source hosting sites 


Is the crawler itself "open-source"?

Zabrane
