Description Simon 2009-04-01 06:41:29 EDT
Spec URL:


This script is intended to help you watch URLs and get notified 
(via email or in your terminal) of any changes. 
The change notification will include the URL that has changed 
and a unified diff of what has changed.

The script supports the use of a filtering hook function to 
strip trivially-varying elements of a webpage.
Basic features

 * Simple configuration (text file, one URL per line)
 * Easily hackable (clean Python implementation)
 * Can run as a cronjob and mail changes to you
 * Always outputs only plaintext - no HTML mails :)
 * Supports removing noise (always-changing website parts)
 * Example hooks to filter content in Python
