Amazon wishlist watcher

Project Description

Uses wishlist to monitor an Amazon wishlist and send an email when prices change.



$ pip install watchlist

Or be bleeding edge:

$ pip install "git+"

You’ll need to setup a Sendgrid account (if you don’t have one already, there is a free tier).

And you’ll need some environment variables:

export BROWSER_CACHE_DIR=/var/watchlist
export PROM_DSN_1="prom.interface.sqlite.SQLite://${BROWSER_CACHE_DIR}/watchlist.db#watchlist"

Make sure your BROWSER_CACHE_DIR actually exists.

Install wishlist’s dependencies also.

If you have a private wishlist, then you’ll need to login to Amazon before you can run watchlist, you can follow the wishlist directions to signin.

Then you can run this:

$ watchlist NAME

Where NAME is the Wishlist name, basically the string in the url You can set this command up in a cron job to have it run periodically and send you updates.
