Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Tingfinder uses a python library called Selenium that can automate browser tasks for us. It opens a headless chrome browser, and we can tell it which elements to interact with. With our defined products, prices and location it opens op DBA.dk, GulGratis.dk and Lauritz.com and searches for relevant products.

How does tingfinder know what to search for?

Tingfinder creates a directory in your .config folder, that holds our config.py and search-agent.csv. In the config.py script we tell Tingfinder where to search, and in the search-agent.csv we tell what products to look for, and in what pricerange. Formatting in the CSV file should match the prefilled product, like so; "search term",min-price,max-price and one product per line. Quotation marks on the search terms is required and min/max-price is set in DKK.

How do I install tingfinder?

Installing tingfinder is super easy! Just clone the repo from the github page, change permission on the installer, and run it. A copy/paste ready command is available at the Github readme.

Windows has a seperate standalone release with an executable .exe file.

How do I set my geographical settings?

You can easily change your settings in the config.py script located in ~/.config/tingfinder/config.py

Open the file in any old text editor, and put in your Danish postal code, and how far you're willing to travel go get the product.
