Project title: PROGRAMMER to teach me how to Combine - Python., automate windows & email programs, rss feeds.
Posted by: External project from Upwork
Started: 25-May-2019 12:52 GMT
Description: I will provide the program and directions. - My programming roomate had it operating for me a year ago but he is no longer around and it was on his computer.  I want to learn programming and need this program working on my machine and need knowledge how to modify it for various search and exclusionary terms

The programs and some direction are attached.  Note this is python 2.7 so wont run on latest.   Ultimatley just want to getting it working. I don't have any python installed yet so no matter to me if what version you run.

I expect to pay you for the time to get it running then pay you to teach it and other programming to me.

I have many other automated windows stuff and web scrapping databases to create.

Thanks for your time.

The following is a discription of the goal. THere is also a txt file with more info too.

The purpose is to automate a search for specific classified items using kijijij 's rss feeds. Overview of where to acess feeds is here  https://help.kijiji.ca/helpdesk/basics/how-do-i-subscribe-to-kijiji-s-rss-feeds    You would need to install an rss feed attached to yoru browser.  

As an example I buy and sell pool heaters  from kijiji.  To automate this  process I want to monitor the rss feed that is created by my search criteria. The search url is here http://www.kijiji.ca/b-hot-tub-pool/ontario/heater/k0c681l9004   Mouse click on the orange rss feed button on the bottom of page and your feed reader will start receiving the classifieds as they are posted.

I want to import these rss feed results into sql and eliminate a bunch I am not insterested in using exlusionary terms so in the end I hone in on just the heaters i am looking fro namely: natural gas heaters only exluding solar and heat pumps, hot tub ads that mention heaters etc.   When list of useable classifieds is sorted out I want the new items sent to my email every hour.  

the program Erich set up was working pretty good but I want to understand the inner workings and be able to add further search urls and respective exlusionary terms. I want to be educated enough so i can replicate this for furnaces, building materials etc.

Here are erichs instructions with attache program files

The first thing to do is to install MailAlert on  harddrive. This is the program that is used to send the emails.

Search for the program mailalert from sourceforge with Google and install it.

The programs that I have are set up to run in the C:\MailAlert folder on the computer, so  install into the same folder on your computer.

There are 4 scripts that are run in sequence every hour.
They are:

chk_files_addnew.py
chk_files_filter.py
chk_files_mail.py
mail_stuff.cmd      <--- This file is created by chk_files_mail.py

kijiji_searches.db3

The python scripts use a SQLite database called kijiji_searches.db3, which store the search terms, exclusion terms and results.

The scripts are attached to this email and are pretty self explanatory. If you need any help deciphering this,   give me a call or email.
