Our mission is to provide the Web community with a simple Web automation environment (finally) allowing everyone to harvest data elements, documents or media from virtually any public (and legal) source of content. The technology is open and will eventually provide an API and wizards to build simple and efficient tools.
The OutWit Platform is composed of a kernel that contains a large library of data recognition and extraction functions, around which an unlimited number of original extensions —called outfits— can be developed, using the kernel’s features for specific applications.
An outfit is a small extension with its own user interface, features, scripts and directory of Web sources. Some outfits will be developed by us, but most, hopefully, will be developed by our users who have a specific need or passion.
