The description of Quantool: html-parser & website monitor with alert
This app can help you to fetch any text information from the internet (websites, services, APIs), parse it and display it to you with widgets or system notifications. Also you can setup it for receiving an alert when some content changes on the source.
Please note that to work properly with the application, it is desirable to have special skills (css, regular expressions). But for simple cases it's not needed.
Do you want to get alert when your profile in social network gets 100 000 subscribers? Or maybe you want to be notified when some product will be in stock or check its price? Or currency rate? Or you just want to see last posts on your favorite forums topic?
All of this you can do with this app! Especially if have some knowledge about regular expressions or CSS or Json and maybe a bit of HTML 😉
The key features of Quantool:
- parse formats: by regular expression, by css-selectors, by Json path or just ping server for availability. You can parse HTML, XML, maybe some APIs etc
- visual element selection for simple templates in css-mode parsing (it's better to setup selector manually, because it's more flexible and give a stable result, but in some simple cases auto selector detecting works good too)
- parsing results history for every template, it can be saved to txt-file if needed
- customizable notifications (disable, enable, or enable on condition)
- customizable widgets (choose an icon of each widget and its color, title, font size)
- preconfigured templates for some popular social networks. You can use it as examples and configure your own template
- after you create an amazing template you can easily share it to your friends by link or code. If you don't have special special knowledge about regular expressions or css, you can ask someone to help you, and then share that template for you.
How this application can help you is limited only by your imagination, just don't forget to share your useful template with other people.
- ATTENTION! The mechanism of the background work has been changed, so the min period between requests can be at least 20 minutes now. This made because of new versions of Android has many restrictions for the background work
- Widgets program code has been redesigned, some issues have been found and fixed. After the update, it is recommended to recreate the existing widgets
- A lot of little things have been reworked in the code, if you find bugs, don’t kick me too much 🙂
