Building an Amazon Stock Monitor App

In this class I will teach you how to create an Amazon stock monitor app that checks the inventory and availability of an Amazon product and notifies you via Discord when an item is in stock. This is very useful for multiple purposes as people need stock monitor applications so they can check out an item as soon as it is in stock.


The Goal and Material

The first video introduces our goal in this course, while the second and third video deal with installing NPM, Got, and NodeJS as well as using these frameworks/libraries to send our first request to the Amazon server. Many programmers in the industry have experience with HTTP requests so learning about them right now gives you a head start!

Section One - Monitor and Run Functions

Following the introduction and overall setup of the project, the first section features the core of the application. The Monitor() function is what we will use to actually check the availability of an item through a GET request and HTML parsing using a npm library. We will explore how to find the proper requests to target to include in our program and then we will go through getting details from the response from Amazon's server.

Section Two - Multiple Monitors and Discord Integration

In the second section of this coding project, we will further develop our program so that it can monitor multiple products on Amazon, or for any site for that matter. We will also use a library to communicate with Discord and notify ourselves through discord notifications when an item is in stock. While this may seem like an advanced coding concept, trust me I will walk you through it! Using APIs, libraries, and frameworks is all coding is in 2021.

Final Section - Packaging and Next Steps

In the final section I go over packaging our application so that we can run the application on any computer. This way a user you sell the monitor to does not have to install VSCode or any other IDE to run the Amazon Stock Monitor application. Also, I will cover how to package it for multiple OS so that if you have a Mac and Windows, you can run the application on both. I end off with presenting possible next steps you can take to take this stock monitor to the next level!


Who am I?

My name is Ritesh - a student at the University of Maryland and on the side, I create academic YouTube videos about the SAT, college advice, coding, and productivity. My favorite videos to create are my computer science videos because as a computer science major, I love coding cool, unique projects that can help other individuals accomplish their own goals. A developer for the people you can say! I feel that I've learned a lot in my years as a software engineer, so I've decided to create an extensive, in-depth series of Skillshare classes to share my knowledge of the best project I have ever dove into: creating a fast and competitive checkout bot.
