                        determine if the bot should export the content into a
                        file

Config

To switch the notification-type just use the ./data/config.json.

On my example i used the recommended list from Steam itself. If you clink on an tag on the left list, you are able to retrieve your tag-ids:

  • http://store.steampowered.com/tag/browse/#recommended_4085 -> 4085
  • http://store.steampowered.com/tag/browse/#recommended_6650 -> 6650
  • http://store.steampowered.com/tag/browse/#recommended_3843 -> 3843
  • http://store.steampowered.com/tag/browse/#recommended_3964 -> 3964

And so on...

These ids will be used in the config.
