    With brewtoad shutting down, an easy auto importer from brewtoad seems like a great way to grab more customers. A bunch of my brewtoad using friends are manually exporting all of their data now, and that's pretty tedious.

    We support importing XML and BSMX files. What file type are Brewtoad's?

    They also support beerxml. My friends are manually saving them each individually. But some users might have say, 20+ recipes. A little scraper that given a brewtoad username/user id, scrapes the user recipe listing page to get all the recipes for the user, and imports them to brewersfriend would save people a bunch of time and earn you a lot of good will.
