Woot.com Script

12 posts in this topic

Hey guys. Made this script to monitor the Woot website. Has some nifty features. Checks itself for auto-updates. Give it a look if you're interested in woot.com.

You'll find it the script here - http://www.w-woot.com/

Once you fine fellows get a chance to tinker with it, I would love some ideas on how to improve it - features, bugs, etc.

Hey looks good i couldn't find any problems with it ill see if i can come up with some suggestions for ya.

Keep up the good work.

EDIT:Heres an idea for the installer (most people around here don't really like them...) i would have some sort of a GUI displayed to let the user know its actually installing.

That's an excellent idea. It would be good to make some of the below tasks optional also.

FYI:

Installer does the following:

-Checks to see if a current version of wWoot is already running

-Installs files to the 'Program Files\wWoot' directory

-Adds itself to the 'Add/Remove Programs' list for easy uninstall

-Adds shortcuts to the Desktop, Start Menu & Startup

-Starts the app

Getting ready to upload an update. Unless you changed your options, your software will update automatically. :) One of my favorite features. Current version is now 2.42

I have incorporated the following changes per your request:

-User now has the option to choose whether shortcut is placed in startup folder

-Color of the "I Want One" button is now orange

Another update. 2.43

-Fixed a bug in the options window. Was missing some includes due to the new beta.

I'm also going to add a progress bar for those who have "Silent Updates" selected in the Options window.

That option is already there. The setup asks if you would like to add to your Startup folder.
