Have you investigated linkedin profile import feasibility yet? Their API is really restrictive and they're blocking most of the hosting provider IP ranges.

Ridiculous that they restrict access to user profiles even if with the explicit user permission (via OAuth).

Let me know if you find a solution :)

Yes, their API is useless, imo. At least at getting stuff out. They want their users locked in.

I'm building a tool thats parsing .html files (your public profile), and extracting relevant information. Build on nokogiri, and open source. More info here: https://programmercv.com/resume-exporter

Nice, cashing out on the fact your audience is technical :)
