To keep up to date with software releases, updates on products, or whatever I usually use e-mail and RSS. Still miss you Google Reader!
But some websites do not offer email alerts or RSS feeds. Here I found a solution the other day. Thanks to the Self-Hosted Sub on Reddit.
Say hello 👋 to Changedetection which will show you the diff of the website you are tracking:
You can add sites, customize the check interval, configure various notifications (I did set up Gmail) and even subscribe to the RSS feed for your sites!
Awesome I say!
You can just easily run it on your local machine, does not need to be on a server, if you are fine with checking only when the machine is on.
Here is the
docker-compose.yaml I am using:
version: '3' services: changedetection: image: ghcr.io/dgtlmoon/changedetection.io container_name: changedetection hostname: changedetection volumes: - /data/docker/changedetection/data:/datastore environment: - PUID=1000 - PGID=1000 ports: - 5000:5000 restart: unless-stopped
There is a more extensive example with good comments on their GitHub. Check them out!
I am running Changedetection on my Odroid HC4 and have setup E-Mail notifications via gmail. Super useful!
