BlackLight is a project with big potential to make a huge difference but to launch they needed a Django development company to take on the challenges that come with this kind of business. The website that was needed for the task required a custom-coded Django framework to create the tools that make the resources accessible.
Attention is being brought to bear on Black-owned businesses and with good reason. So many small businesses are falling to the wayside in post COVID times, and none more so than those owned and operated by persons of color.
BlackLight is a comprehensive database of Black-owned businesses, their contacts, websites, and other business information, recommendations, and referrals for them. By creating a resource that puts all of this information in one place, businesses and communities otherwise overlooked can thrive through mutual support.
Knowing the importance of this project, the Idea Maker team went to work in partnership with the brilliant minds behind the BlackLight project. The collaboration built a website and comprehensive database that is constantly updated by the customized web Scrape Tool to pull information from various sources and put it at their users’ fingertips.

What We Did
Custom Coded Web Scrape Tool
Some scrape tools used for gathering website information can negatively affect your SEO, however, an ethically written scrape tool can be used to boost your business website to new markets. Idea Maker created a detailed scrape tool to pull information from sites all over the web and deposit the information in a usable database.
Database Viewer with Filter Features
The database that the scraper information lands in is built into a custom database dashboard with highly detailed filter features so you can find the right business for your needs. This dashboard also allows you to exclude specific businesses from your search based on certain criteria.
In addition to the base filters on the database, there is also an integrated search feature on the project database. When you’re needing a specific business type, searching to see your options is more efficient than digging through the filtered results.
