Pling-o-matic

Just like magic the Pling-o-matic creates order out of chaos


Pling-o-matic is an application we built and maintain for Substance‘s Plings project. Plings, publishes details of places to go and things to do for 13-19 year olds.

Plings identified that there was a wealth of good data online but asked us to solve the issue of that data being unstructured and untidy. We built an application which parses freetext for instances of days, dates and times, runs these instances through some complex logic and outputs structured start and end times for events.

The application is also capable of parsing freetext for ages ranges, addresses, contact details and keywords. This year pling-o-matic has created and published over 120,000 plings
