README

Sitebeagle watches a site for you.

“Beagles make good watch dogs.” – from the wikipedia entry for Beagles

By: barce

Note: We are moving sitebeagle to Ruby using OAuth authentication. The newLISP part was cool and I got to find out about new things, but right now I just need something that works & now. - barce 9/29/2010

requirements:

curl
twitter account from http://twitter.com/ for sending changes / outages
twitter account from http://twitter.com/ for receiving changes / outages
ruby

how to use:

=1= get a consumer_key and consumer_secret for this application from twitter
=2= put those into a file called auth.yaml
=3= edit get_oauth.rb. point it to auth.yaml and set oauth_confirm_url .
=4= run get_oauth.rb
=5= note values for access_token and access_secret
=6= put those values into auth.yaml
=7= run sitebeagle.rb by typing: ./sitebeagle.rb http://example.com 5 twitter_username

known issues: if a site changes its html each time when you go to it, sitebeagle won't work

work around:

use the regex functionality on sitebeagle to isolate the html you want to monitor, e.g.:
./sitebeagle.rb --url http://www.meetup.com/Data-Mining/ --user barce --alerts 5 --regex upcomingTab.*span
