tool for monitoring webpages for updates
This script is intended to help you watch URLs and get notified (via email)
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.
This is a simple URL watcher, designed to send you diffs of webpages as they
change. Ideal for watching web pages of university courses, so you always
know when lecture dates have changed or new tasks are online :)
1. Start "urlwatch"
2. Edit and rename the examples in ~/.urlwatch/
3. Add "urlwatch" to your crontab (crontab -

urlwatch - Watch web pages and arbitrary URLs for changes

unified diffs of the changes. You can filter always-changing
parts of websites by providing a "hooks.py" script.
