The Plugin system provides a way in which the functionality of bookmark checks can be changed or enhanced by writing small "Basic" scripts.

 

WebSite-Watcher contains a powerful Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to write, debug and test these Plugins.

 

A Plugin script must contain one or more Event functions. During a bookmark check, WebSite-Watcher calls these event functions (if available) at appropriate times. That allows you, for instance, to extract a specific price from a web page, compare it with the price from the previous version and only alert an update if the price is lower than USD 100 and lower than the previous price.

 

WebSite-Watcher supports Private Plugins (which are created and saved per bookmark) and Shared Plugins (which are saved in separate files and can be shared between bookmarks).
