For those of you who use MangaUpdates for listing and check for new chapters, I made a little thing to make it lil easier:

>http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/293200

> Features:
> - Shows last chapter release with search link for scanlator
> - Highlights finished titles

Open to suggestions. I'm thinking about making some settings table.

What do you would like to have?

google.pt?

>botnet

nice try

Search link for scanlator seems sort of pointless when there's a script that simply adds the scanslator sites back in. It'd be great if it could be used in conjunction with https://github.com/loadletter/mangaupdates-urlfix/ so I don't have to go to a subpage to go directly to the website.

I personally care for the highlighting finished titles but I'm sure someone will appreciate it.

>>100902382
I didn't know it existed, I'll replace it then.

Neat. Works great with my wishing list since I had to check for updates manually.

Why not just use Batoto and it'll update your personally selected list according to the language you prefer?

Because they have a habit of removing series that doesn't match up to their morals.

I just created my own script yesterday. Spent hours working on it all day yesterday. Got too tired, woke up today and got it working the way I want very quickly, I needed some sleep.

It's in bash and designed for Linux/BSD/OSX computers to be run with cron, preferably ones that are on all day.

Here's the cron job I'm using:

#Everyday at 6 AM/PM
0 6 * * * /usr/local/bin/baka-updates
0 18 * * * /usr/local/bin/baka-updates

If you have a mangaupdates acc you could make something to import manga titles from mylist.html instead of manually adding them to the script

bash is an anachronism, you should consider porting to Python.

>>100910816
It gives me a new-line separated list that I can just read into an array?

Thank you for the suggestion, but I really don't add manga that often, it would probably take me longer to sign-in to mangaupdates if I'm not already, add the manga to the mangaupdates watch list or whatever it is, download it and move the file to a good position, rather than just go to the update page for a manga and edit that link into the array.

Python is an anachronism, you should consider porting to Rust.

>>100911058
Only for windows it is.

I use python a lot actually, and most of the could be written perfectly in python, for sure arrays in python are way better ( ${#manga_array[@]} Vs. len(manga_array) ).

The equivalent tools for opening/writing files, and god forbid what you have to do to get the equivalent of "if grep $string $file", would have made it even more nasty than I wanted.

But of course it being cross-platform due to python would be better, and I definitely understand that.

>>100911467
cute

>>100911928
It was just a suggestion, I realize there are pros and cons. Either way, thanks for the script.

Since we're sharing code, here's a simple Flask page I use to generate per-series RSS feeds from MangaUpdates.
http://pastebin.com/eCAqHEfT
And the accompanying templates/rsstemplate.xml
http://pastebin.com/GUu68qQw

It's not perfect and I haven't really tested it properly but it works well enough for me.
>>
>>100901950
It doesn't work for me.
>>
>>100913285
What plugin & browser are you using
>>
>>100913279
I have way too hard of a time reading other peoples code. Having a hard time following it.

I assume those two files have to have specific file names, and that it inputs the correct sections into the xml from variables defined from cutting out text in the link/html.

>>100913721
Last version of Chrome, no plugins out of the ordinary. just the standard stuff.
>>
>>100915689
I tested chrome with tampermonkey and it worked.

I would suggest not doing that incrementally. God... Several hundred series causes massive lag.
>>
>people checking updates manually

Why not just use RSS? FeedDemon + RSS filters = updates
>>
>>100920815
People some people like to have updates with absolutely no context to them.
