$Id$ $HeadURL$ Deal Mailer VERSION_PLACEHOLDER Deoren Moor http://projects.whyaskwhy.org/ Description, Usage, Requirements, Install, Contact us, Bugs, Copyright, License. ================== DESCRIPTION ================== Deal Mailer is a Python script that fetches the latest deals (currently only for ebooks) and sends an email notification. ================== USAGE ================== The idea is to run it via a cron job daily to see if there are any deals you may be interested in. To do this, you'll need to specify several settings which are mentioned below. ================== REQUIREMENTS ================== - Python 2.6.x http://www.python.org/download/releases/ http://www.python.org/ftp/python/ - Beautiful Soup http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/ Note: Has it's own license. See 'License' at the bottom of this file. ================== INSTALLATION ================== - Beautiful Soup If you're running at least Ubuntu 10.04, this should take care of you: apt-get install python-beautifulsoup - The Deal Mailer script: Copy it somewhere where you keep other scripts that are not provided by the operating system. For example, /usr/local/bin/ or your home directory. Configure the script to include at least this basic information: * Mail server * Email address (who is going to receive it?) * Sender address (what address do you want to claim is sending it?) See http://projects.whyaskwhy.org/projects/deal-mailer/wiki/ for more details. ================== CONTACT US ================== We look forward to hearing from you!
