So, I plan on writing a program that will watch predetermined stations that I’ll be stocking with various items… I want it to watch quantity for me so I know when I need to restock, as well as determine the minimum price to sell at to make a profit when figuring in jump fuel etc.
It also would of course tell me when I was undercut in price and whatnot.
I had something very similar in Excel back when API was used but I never adapted it to ESI or to Citadels…
I know PHP pretty well but am always willing to learn new languages if I go a different route.
My first spreadsheet was probably too much to handle for excel as it struggled so I am guessing since I am starting from scratch I should probably avoid Excel or Google sheets for that matter so I guess the question is …
Can ESI do what I want? from what little Ive seen it has mostly the same functionality of API if not more so I’m guessing the answer is yes… and if Yes, what language would you guys recommend for what I want?
I was partly considering PHP cause, I know php, and also I may be able to get it setup on a website so other people could use it too, if I choose to share it ofc
