TECHNOLOGY

Accurate technical choices have made it possible to create an efficient and fast aggregation site. Fast2Drive’s front-end uses AngularJS, a stable and tested framework, and a combination of plugins to make it easier and faster to implement new features, manage the User Experience and application’s localization.

The REST service layer is based on AWS API Gateway and AWS Lambda in JavaScript language to allow high scalability. While the guarantee of stability and performance have made the choice to fall on the PostgreSQL database engine.

Gli scraper che si occupano di reperire i dati delle offerte sono stati realizzati in Python e registrano le informazioni raccolte su bucket AWS S3. Il sistema di trigger di AWS S3 permette di gestire in maniera asincrona la scrittura dei dati nel database.

Scrapers that get the offers’ data have been created in Python and they register information collected on AWS S3 buckets. The AWS S3 triggering system allows to manage asynchronously the writing of data in the database.
