craigslist.org: an other way to view

craigslist.org: an other way to view

While I visit http://craigslist.org, I find some inconvenience:

  • The search function is very limit. Every time only 1 city, only 1 category, only 1 item can be viewed. e.g.:
    It is impossible to view ‘web / info design‘, ‘software / qa / dba‘ and ‘internet engineers‘ under ‘jobs‘ category at the same time;
    it is impossible to view ‘Vancouver‘ as well as ‘Calgery‘ at the same time;
    it is impossible to input several keywords at the same time to search: ‘developer’, ‘php’, ‘lamp’, ‘senior’, ‘javascript’.
  • The search results can not output forms (csv/pdf/document/xml etc)
  • Poor email functions
  • How to track history records?

These inconvenience give the third-party software the space to extend craigslist applications.

By using spare-time, I did some useful improvements to make the search features more powerful and practical, and today the version 1 is done. I put it in my personal website:


Now this version work fines. All the above inconvenience are improved by add new features in the site.

The interface is not good enough, however, it is launched. I will continue to use my spare time to improve it. It will become more and more powerful and useful.
