Realtime auction logger (hourly refresh, may increase)
 
Hello all,

I have a new logger up at my site - unlike the wiki logger this is updated much more frequently and includes the actual /auc listings (one for each unique seller found).

You can view it at:

http://ahungry.com/eqauctions/

For this to show current info users will need to submit their logs in real time. To simplify that, I have added a Windows exe (as well as *nix shell scripts) that will scan your defined log directory and send in the newest lines of your logs to the auction server.

You will not need to refresh the page to view updated auctions, some javascript will handle that for you.

There is also a search box, this search accepts all types of regex arguments (if you are unfamiliar, I will list some common ones):

To see all auctions for sale of a certain item (in this case a flowing black silk sash), filter by some custom "sale" verbage and the item name, by typing the following into the search box:
Code:

(wts|sell|wtt).*(fbss|flowing black silk)
To see all auctions of people wanting to buy a FBSS, you could enter:
Code:

(wtb|buy).*(fbss|flowing black silk)
I still have my EQ Atlas mirror with restyling up at:

VERY cool. I think the most useful part about this will be helping to link up with people selling what you need and vice versa. Nice work bruddah.

awesome work!

nice man.. thanks for the work.


is there a way to actually post WTS or WTB an item on your site?


maybe a way to list wares so when people search they see everybody who is currently trying to sell that item.

Be sure to post a link to the sourcecode so we can review it :) Giving people additional safety in executing your file.

Btw - if you can, please write your tool in a language that can be built with gnu compilers, allowing for builds on different platforms. I.e. no Visual whatever shit ;)

I actually use Linux as my main machine, so it will definitely be standard C (only depenency is libcurl).

I actually have a one-liner using tail, grep and curl to send the updates from my machine currently (parsing done on my webserver courtesy of perl - I'll put up that source also).

Since requiring windows users to install a cygwin setup or something equally involved would have been too much work, I opted to write a compiled binary for them so they can fire and forget it (its still being worked on).
