ePloy project is a eBay price plotter.
ePloy will take this list of AuctionIDs and check whether the Auctions have already ended and writes the endingprice into a Database. This "check" could be run as a cronjob for example. From this Database again you can generate graphs and display various information about the Auctions.
The main thing you have to know is: you need several ebay developer keys and a token. but dont run away - its not as bad as it sounds.
You can get all those keys at stuff http://developer.ebay.com/ - for free!
Its not as annoying as it may sound - although it _is_ a bit annoying. The developer.ebay.com site should be selfexplaining. first get your account with your three keys, then fill out the self certification form, get another 3 keys (enter those in ebay.ini ... see ebay.ini.example) and finally specify your regular ebay user account to the
developer.ebay.com website and finally get your token (kinda long - few lines)
By the way - no worries. this tool cannot destroy any ebay data or accidentially bid on something. even with the token you need to fill out another certification form (oh hell!) to get "write" access to ebay from the api.
What's New in This Release:
· This release is usable, but currently only on Unix.
· Windows support is still to come with the new plotter.
