Web Scraping with R

Hacker News

The goal of this project was to scrape Hacker News and get the title of the post, external website the post links to, user who posted it, points/upvotes, time it was posted, and number of comments in an attempt to see if there are any keywords or external website that makes a post get more upvotes. This was more so a learning experience on how to scrape data with R and was terminated in favor of a website with more information to gather.

Investors Hub

There is not much to this project. The goal was to scrape InvestorsHub stock headlines and perform sentiment analysis on the data. It was started at the same time as the Hacker News project where I was first learning more about the R programming language. This project was also terminated in favor of a better stock website to scrape data from.
