    FYI; Nicezia has now also released a Scraper Editor (with GUI) for Windows:
    [RELEASE] Scraper Editor - XBMC Community Forum
    PS! Nicezia is now also in the process of porting the ScraperXML to C# so keep an eye on:
    SourceForge.net: ScraperXML
    and
    ScraperXML (Open Source XML Web Scraper VB.NET Library) please help verify my work... - XBMC Community Forum

    ScraperXML is a Open Source Web Scraper Library compatible with all XBMC's XML Scrapers :D

    I appreciate your enthusiasm Gamester17, but I am not sure anyone here is going to jump on board this project...

    fforde, the cornerstone.scraperengine seems to be very cool.

    the issue is that the code seems highly coupled to mediaportal and some 3rd party libraries (nlog, for instance).

    is it ok if an effort goes underway to decouple the scraper engine from mediaportal ...

    I really dig the dictionary approach to input/output.

    please let me know your comments.

    The Cornerstone scraping engine has zero references to MediaPortal. It does use the NLog library for logging, but that would be easy enough to change or remove. It is licensed under GPL3 so assuming what you want to use it for is under a compatible licences you should be good. Jump on IRC or send me a PM if you'd like to chat a bit more about it.
