Watch That Post

LiveJournal doesn't have the feature to watch a post yet. I figured I should write something that would do something similar. So I wrote Watch That Post, a simple Python script that watches a post.

How To:
  • Create a file (urls.txt or whatever), and add the permalink URLs of the posts you want to watch - each URL on a new line.
  • Make changes to the source - change the value of the variable urls. You might also want to change the value of period
  • Run the program.
Of course, this is not something that everybody would like, but if you have an uninterrupted Internet connection, it'll work just fine.

By default the program alerts you about new posts via the console. You might want to redirect output to a file, if you like:
python watch.py > watch.txt
