Scrape any website, easily
Dashblock turns any information on a page into an api endpoint. In normal people speak that means you can retrieve information on a website easily and automatically. Dashblock provides an interface where you highlight the information you want to retrieve (e.g. the headline article on CNN) and then gives you a way to programmatically retrieve that data. This isn’t a no-code tool per se but I do see a lot of uses cases:
- Merchants or hoteliers can check their product’s prices across multiple channels to see how 3rd parties are dynamically pricing their products.
- Get the top 10 trending articles on CNN/NYTimes/etc at any point of the day
Gmail on steroids
This is a workflow automation tool that lives in Gmail. A cross between Sortd
- putting emails into a Kanban format on Gmail - and Streak
- a CRM that lives in your gmail. Add on top a process automation tools to manage support tickets and tasks. This looks powerful, especially if your team runs on email.
Your virtual office
I spent two years working at a fully remote company. It’s a win win: no commute, flexible hours, less overhead etc. However, there’s one strong and painful drawback: isolation. It’s crazy lonely and you end up going crazy.
Tandem looks to tackle that by making it easier to collaborate with remote teammates. But also, more importantly in my view, make it easier to just take a break with a colleague across the world in a digital space. Remote work is the next step in globalization and I’m excited about the tools that will support that shift. Hat tip to Sococo
also tackling this space (while not in YC).
