iPhone X Availability Node CLI
A node cli tool I put together to check the iPhone X in-store availability near me instead of having to refresh the apple website over and over again.
Warning: This was very quickly put together so it is very rough and has a lot of room for improvement. It did end up being successful in letting me know there was some new stock near me a few hours after I built it so at the very least: it works!
By the way this was only tested on a Mac, I can't guarantee it will work on other platforms.
Feel free to submit a pull request with improvements or just simply fork it and modify it for your own needs. Soon there won't be a shortage of iPhones anymore so this tool will be irrelevant.
What it does
It continously makes requests to Apple's availability api. When it finds some new stock near you, it displays the stores' name and distance from your zipcode then exits the program.
