Tag search: F#
I’m regularly tasked with quickly getting some statistics about a website, and being the geeky developer I am – I tend to use my F# scripts to gather this data. This time, I’m going to show you how you can use a similar method to my previous post ‘Grabbing Page Titles with F#‘ to grab metrics from SEOmoz.
To try out this code, you should already have an idea what F# is and how it works. If not, check out the F# Developer Center on MSDN.
Through experience, my favourite language for the .NET Framework is probably F#. True, it doesn’t fit into every situation; I don’t fancy writing a website with it for example. But for scripts and utilities, there’s nothing better.
You can run things interactively using F# Interactive or you can compile something up and use it as a normal executable. It’s super-fast to prototype with, which is great when you’re just throwing ideas around the office like we often do at Branded3.
