Get last review date (Amazon)

Recommended Posts

include('simple_html_dom.php'); //Html dom parser from: https://sourceforge.net/projects/simplehtmldom/files/simple_html_dom.php
$product_id= "B01BGFBUC4";  //Amazon product ID
$url = "http://www.amazon.com/One-Persons-Craziness-R-T-Ojas-ebook/product-reviews/".$product_id."/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending&filterByStar=two_star";
$html = file_get_html($url);
$ret = $html->find('div[id=cm_cr-review_list] span[class=a-size-base a-color-secondary review-date]', 0);
$amazonReviewCount = $ret->innertext;
echo "$amazonReviewCount";

Result: on February 28, 2016


Is there a way to do this just natively in Autoit?

One of the many ways

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sProductID = "B01BGFBUC4" ;  //Amazon product ID
Local $sURL = "http://www.amazon.com/One-Persons-Craziness-R-T-Ojas-ebook/product-reviews/" & $sProductID & "/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending&filterByStar=two_star";

Local $sSource = BinaryToString(InetRead($sURL, 1))

Local $sReview = StringRegExp($sSource, '(?:<span class="a-size-base a-color-secondary review-date">)(.*?)(?:</span>)', 3)
If Not @error And IsArray($sReview) Then
    _ArrayDisplay($sReview, "DEBUG")
    MsgBox(0, "Last review", $sReview[UBound($sReview) - 1])

Thank you Terenz.  I was attempting with _IEDocReadHTML

Dim $sSrc = _IEDocReadHTML($oIE)
Dim $aMatch = StringRegExp($sSrc, '(?:<span class="a-size-base a-color-secondary review-date">)(.*?)(?:</span>)', 3)

Is there a command to search for the date in the source after a specific id/tag only?

Amazon added 2 sticky reviews in iframe and sometime 3

Example: https://www.amazon.com/One-Persons-Craziness-R-T-Ojas-ebook/product-reviews/B01BGFBUC4/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_viewopt_sr?ie=UTF&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending&filterByStar=all_stars&pageNumber=1

Pull after the last actual review and not the top critic, or top comments, or top positive.
