    I'm currently using Huginn, but it's not exactly light or flexible
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    I see. So do you want to automate manipulation or just get notifications?
    Daniele Polencic
    @danielepolencic
    Ideally, automate manipulation with kibitzr

    How good are you with Python?
    Daniele Polencic
    @danielepolencic
    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
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    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.

    @danielepolencic
    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

    @peterdemin
    I think rss should be similar to emails. Check out this extension https://github.com/kibitzr/kibitzr-email
    It stores processed emails in a sqlite database

    Hey, @danielepolencic, how things are going?
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    Hi @cescobarresi, how are you doing? Could you please share how are you using Kibitzr? How do you run it (systemd, Docker, supervisord, screen, terminal)? What are the checks?
    Francesco Barresi
    @cescobarresi
    Hi, I started using kibitzr just two weeks ago. For now I run it in a terminal but I plan on running as a systend unit.
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    Good news for you then. Here is systemd unit along with the rest of the setup: https://github.com/kibitzr/kibitzr/blob/ansible/ansible/kibitzr.yml#L52
    I didn't finish the Ansible stuff (I got stuck in Vagrant integration), but the playbook worked fine locally.
    Francesco Barresi
    @cescobarresi
    Great, I'll look it up.
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    What about the checks?
    Francesco Barresi
    @cescobarresi
    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?
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    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.
    Francesco Barresi
    @cescobarresi
    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.
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    Let me check
    Francesco Barresi
    @cescobarresi

    Is this a kibitzr feature or YAML?
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    Kibitzr. YAML has some cross-links feature but it gets crazy fast.

    Hi @peterdemin I would like work on this issue kibitzr/kibitzr#37
    @peterdemin Can You guide me I am new to Opensource
    I have created the local development environment using this Doc https://kibitzr.readthedocs.io/en/latest/contributing.html created the branch name as variables_extension
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    Hi Vimal! Alright, how is it going?
    Vimalraj
    @Vimalraj571
    I have created the branch
    I don't know where to start ! I am a Newbie Guy !
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    Very good, what's your Python level?
    Vimalraj
    @Vimalraj571
    Beginner to Intermediate
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    Let's see if tests run well in your virtual environment. Try executing pytest
    Vimalraj
    @Vimalraj571
    Okey
    No it didn't work ( command not found : pytest )
    Vimalraj
    @Vimalraj571
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS
    Release: 16.04
    Codename: xenial
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    I see. You need to install development requirements first. It's not in the doc. Run pip install -r requirements/dev.txt
    Vimalraj
    @Vimalraj571
    Okey @peterdemin
    Okey @peterdemin
    Peter Demin
    @peterdemin
    Okay
    Also this ticket is for an extension, so I think you'll probably won't need a new branch in https://github.com/kibitzr/kibitzr/
    But rather a new repo similar to https://github.com/kibitzr/kibitzr_keyring
    You can start with personal repo and when things are settled we'll transfer it to Kibitzr org and add a link to documentation.
