Hello, I’m Ranajay Das!
def ranajay_das(*args, **kwargs):
‘Django Web Developer’,
I’m a Python Developer with over 13 years of software building experience.
I develop functional and lightweight webapps while traveling the world (the travel part is subject to the whims of unexpected pandemics).
I do what I love and I love what I do. In other words, I wouldn’t be doing this unless I absolutely loved it 😉.
Besides coding, I’m also an author and I published my first novel in 2018.

Automated scraper and search engine that indexes all the open mayoral acts/statutes by the Mayor of Zagreb, Croatia. It indexes over 100,000 statutes and has advanced search features built into the engine (like use of AND, OR, NOT operators, date and file type filtering, exact term search, results highlighting and sorting).
This project was requested by Croatian journalists and funded by Za Grad to make the statutes of the Mayor of Zagreb more transparent, searchable and accountable.
It was recently featured in some Croatian news articles as an important tool in the fight against corruption. You can read more about it in my blog post.

Mailsy is an automated email scraper for accommodations like hotels and hostels that sign up through Counter.app.
Mailsy extracts reservation information from scraped emails (such as reservation number, guest name, dates of reservation, room type etc) and makes them available to Counter.app’s beautiful dashboard. Mailsy also includes an Elasticsearch engine that finds reservations instantly and shows all relevant conversations between the guest and the property, ensuring a smooth check-in experience!
Mailsy is capable of scraping IMAP and OAuth2 accounts and was commissioned by the founders of Counter.app.
Ranajay is an excellent software engineer! We worked together on a web development project where he was introduced to several complex technologies for the first time and was very quick to learn and master them. I hope we’ll have more opportunities to work together!
