Be notified when interesting questions are posted to Stack Exchange sites.
Stack Alert is a program to notify you when a question matching certain filters is asked on a Stack Exchange site. Stack Exchange has a feature that allows you to be notified when questions matching certain tags are asked, but this is often so broad as to be useless. Stack Alert instead allows you to filter using regular expressions against the title and body of the question.
Install stack_alert using pip, preferably into a clean virtual environment:
$ python -m venv ~/stack_alert_venv $ ~/stack_alert_venv/bin/activate $ pip install stack_alert
Specify which questions you want to receive alerts for:
$ vi ~/.config/stack_alert/config.toml [[query]] site = 'stackoverflow' tag = 'python' keywords = '(num|sci)py' # regular expression recipient = 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
$ which sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail $ crontab -e PATH=$HOME/stack_alert_venv/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin 0 17 * * * stack_alert 2>&1 | ts | tinylog /path/to/log/dir
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
