Description: It has become increasingly difficult to enroll in courses at UCLA now that the school is not offering as many courses and the school has become so packed. This project will create a Course Sniper that will allow the user to choose a course and have the course be continuously watched and notify the user when the course is open.
Learning Objective: The main learning objective of this project is to be better familiarized with bash scripting as well as porting this script over to other languages and possibly platforms.
- ability to choose a term, followed by subject, followed by course (data is gathered dynamically so the script doesn’t need to be updated with a new term)
- scrapes the registrar for ID Number, Type, Sec, Days, Start, Stop, Building, Room, Res’t, #En, EnCp, #WL, WLCp, Status every 5 seconds
- pop-up/email notification if there is an open/wait-listed course
print course name change notification to if course data changes instead of if class is open email user if a course is open
- Port over to PHP/Rails
