Crime News Aggregator
St. Louis Crimeline automatically aggregates the latest crime news from local media and displays links to the stories in a responsive, mobile-friendly format.
Crimeline is built with 100% open-source software. The back-end is written in Python. The stories are aggregated using the Scrapy screen scraping and web crawling framework, which feeds items into a SQLite database and Django-powered website. The front-end is handled by Twitter’s Bootstrap framework.
St. Louis Crimeline is an open-source project. The code that runs this website is available on Github.
