I use RSS feeds for everything. I subscribe to a bunch of feeds and then I manipulate them. I usually add some sort of text extraction from the webpage. Sometimes I crop and resize the images before I republish the feed
I'm currently using Huginn, but it's not exactly light or flexible
I see. So do you want to automate manipulation or just get notifications?
Ideally, automate manipulation with kibitzr
How good are you with Python?
I'd like to know when an item in the RSS feed was changed. Not super proficient in python
I can read it and kinda write it
but I wouldn't sell myself as a python dev
Well, I don't have time to add RSS support to kibitzr. But it's actually not a big deal. I've seen several tutorials on how to parse RSS with Python. And kibitzr has an extension point for new fetchers. I can help you with coding, if you want.
Could you show me where the change should be done?
because kibitzr is checking changes for a single item now. having changes for multiple items could be a can of worms. I guess
As for checks, I installed kibitzr specifically to get a hold of a discount I kept missing. So I put up a check for new offers every hour, with notifications via Telegram. After only one day I got to byt the discounted product on time😊
Now I'm in love with kibitzr and have a couple more check I want to implement. Small stuff like get the whether the night via Telegram, check on bank activity, keep track of a product price I may be interested. Like you say on the website, for those things that I would check manually.
I'm curious, what do you use it for?
Awesome! I'm glad it's helping you. I use it at work for service alerts and monitoring. At home for bank account snapshots. For some time I had it checking on WiFi router DHCP table and sending me who is entering and leaving home.
Yes, kibitzr is awesome in its simplicity and at the same time it gives you great magic powers.
I saw something about 'templates' somewhere but nothing in the documentation.
