I made Kicksaver to help out struggling Kickstarter projects and practice working with Google App Engine and AJAX. It parses the Ending Soon and Small Projects categories a few times a day to find projects ending soon. This means it won't always be completely up to date, but it should be close. A working version of the application is available at http://www.kicksaver.net.
Kicksaver was written in Python for Google App Engine.
The backend requires BeautifulSoup
to parse Kickstarter projects, and Tweepy to
update the Twitter feed. The frontend uses JQuery for asynchronous updates,
fonts from Google Web Fonts,
and CSS styles from Bootstrap. This project is a totally non-commercial
thing not affiliated with Kickstarter in any way. All the code for this project is
available under an MIT license. For all the details, see the file
