linkedin

Sequence that reads CSV input (e.g. dump of companies from crunchbase), uses RapidAPI to gather additional data from LinkedIn and outputs aggregated details.

Pre-configuration

Create config.json file with following content:

{
"RAPID_API_KEY": "YOUR_RAPID_API_KEY_GOES_HERE"
}

Running

❗ Remember to setup transform-hub locally or use the platform's environment for the sequence deployment.

Open two terminals and run the following commands:

The first Terminal:

# go to 'crypto-prices' directory
cd typescript/linkedin

# install dependencies
npm install

# transpile TS->JS and copy node_modules and package.json to dist/
npm run build

# deploy the Sequence from the dist/ directory, which contains transpiled code, package.json and node_modules
si seq deploy dist -f config.json
# optionally you can provide the rate limit from command line also.
si seq deploy dist -f config.json --args [150]
si seq start - -f config.json --args [150]
# copy instance _id - you'll use this in 3rd terminal window

# see the Instance output
si inst output -

The second terminal

# replace INSTANCE_ID with actual instance ID and pipe CSV output to instance input
cat companies-06-07-2022.csv | si inst input INSTANCE_ID

Notes

TBC: employees_num is that total company employees?

Example:

Rapid API returns (for microsoft): "employees_num": 218340

At the same time on LinkedIn: 220,828 on LinkedIn with this info note:

Includes members with current employer listed as Microsoft, including part-time roles. Also includes employees from subsidiaries: GitHub,6Wunderkinder,Parature and 20 more.

Rapid API returns website as: https://news.microsoft.com/ (that's not correct) Use website from CSV input.

To match CSV -> LinkedIn use LinkedIn column - regexp to extarct comapny name (vanity_name parameter) required by RapidAPI.
