A Python application that sends you a SMS when the football team you support scores.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. See deployment for notes on how to deploy the project on a live system.

  1. Download and install Python 3.6.
  2. Clone this repository.
  3. Open the terminal, navigate to the folder where your clone of this repository is located and type:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt

This will install all the necessary packages to run this script.

  1. Open config.ini.
  • 4.1. Add in your NUMBER and TEAM (e.g: Portugal, Sweden, Real Madrid)
  • 4.2. Go to Textlocal, register an account and then create an API_KEY here. Copy the API_KEY key and fill it in config.ini accordingly.
  1. Type $ python app.py in the terminal and the script will run for as long as you let it.

Textlocal has a limit of 10 messages per month, so let's hope your team doesn't score more than 10 goals per month!

If you follow these steps, you will receive a message on your phone when your team scores, as seen below: Example


  • Add support for multiple teams.

  • Deploy the project on GitHub pages and allow more people to use this without having to install Python on their machine.

  • Probably re-do a lot of the code. I'm sure there are a lot of things I can optimize. I appreciate any PRs! :)

Thanks for checking the project!
