A couple of months ago, I got really fixated on getting a contact mic by Michael Krzyzaniak. He makes a batch every so often, so I set a reminder to periodically check his website so I could try and catch one while he had them in stock.
May the full force of the event driven web be with you.
As you can imagine, I was agonizing after repeatedly checking once a week for the piezo. It was time to automate.
Visualping.io allows you to graphically track changes to a webpage, and will notify you when those changes occur. I was able to plug in Michael’s shop page and then get an email when the Out of Stock buttons changed to Add to Cart.
This of coursed saved me oodles of time. May the full force of the event driven web be with you!
