Project Description


I'm looking for a coder that has the following skills:

- PHP 5.3

- Object Oriented thinking and programming

- Self learning.


What's the project?


I want a web app, similar to "Google Alerts", but it'll send mail alerts when a certain website changes.

Each alert will be identified by the following fields:

1. Where to email the alert

2. The subject of the email to be sent

3. The body of the email to be sent

4. The URL that should be checked for changes

5. (Optional) DOM object that should be checked.

6. Checking interval in minutes

I should be able to add/edit/delete those alerts.

The script should check each alert on it's interval. If a DOM object was supplied, it will check the DOM object on the given URL. If no DOM object was provided, it'll check the whole page.

If changes were made, it will send an email by the criterias given.


If you want to use a PHP framework, please send me a P.M. with the framework that was on your mind.

When you submit your offer, please send me a sample of your code.
