Craiglist Checker

Send a text when there's a new "For Sale" post for a given keyword or phrase.

The script sends an SMS message to a given phone number using GMail's SMTP protocol, so you'll need to add your GMail username and password to the config file.

An SMS message will only be sent if a new post appears (based on the full URL).


Install the required libraries via pip:

pip install -r requirements.txt


python <search-term> <phone-number>

It's useful to setup a cronjob that will run the script every N minutes.
