How about this: A simple POSIX compliant shell script. I tested it with both GNU and busybox versions of wget and in bash and ash. It opens a connection every 10 seconds and exits when a connection is established. It informs the user that the website is up by displaying a message box using zenity framework. Alternatively, instead of using zenity it ...

There are some addons for Firefox that come very close to your goal: Open in Wayback Machine Right-click link, chose "open in wayback" – and if it works, copy over the URL: Screenshot from the addon's page at AMO As the name suggests, this supports the "Wayback Machine" (aka "Internet Archive") only. MementoWeb Check This is a quite fresh addon, not ...

It doesn't update constantly, but the Wayback Machine at http://web.archive.org scans everything it can, saving snapshots, etc. of sites as they exist at any given moment. Going back years.

Mattermost is the main alternative to Slack that covers most of your requirements. I have not looked at it in a while, but you will also find a few useful others here in previous questions: Team chat with private rooms, file upload and link previews (alternative to Slack) Team chat with native Android/iOS apps, all open source (alternative to Slack)

You can safely dump Chrome... allow me to introduce you to Firefox's Save In... extension. The summary on AMO is well written: Adds a context menu to save media {image, video, audio, link, selection, page} in user-defined directories relative to the default download location. Save into dynamically named directories. Rules-based download renaming and ...

Tooska Farsi OCR is a web-based OCR, which uses modern learning techniques to boost accuracy on the Farsi language (Disclaimer: I'm on Tooska's development team). Farsi is a cursive language which adds much complexity for its recognition, therefore there are few OCR software that have appropriate accuracy. Moreover most OCR systems are desktop based.

I haven't found any websites or programs that can do what you need, so instead of learning Geography, I made a Python 2.7 program to do it for you. Big thanks to jgamblin on Github for his opern source blacklist finder script. from pprint import pprint, pformat from sys import exit, argv from socket import gethostbyname, gethostbyaddr from os.path import ...

You can enable force zoom on Chrome. Go to Settings>Accessibility>Force enable zoom. Hope it works for every website. I've tried it on a couple of sites which did not want to zoom and it worked so try it out! If not, I think that Dolphin Browser also has an option for 'force zooming'.

They Wayback Machine has an JSON based API available as well as Memento protocol and some deeper capture data - https://archive.org/help/wayback_api.php PHP is trivial to learn, does GET and POST requests with native functions or curl support, and has easy json parsing to associative arrays.

"LastModified Date" is a Firefox extension that displays last modification date / time of web pages in the url bar. I have had mixed results - it doesn't seem to work on every site. LastModified Date extension

You can't, because most servers won't share everything they have (e.g., my website won't give you its password file), and many don't even provide a way to list everything they'll share. The closest you can get in general is to use a web crawler that tries to find everything on a website by following links. Try, for example, wget with the --mirror option.

Have you checked out Rabb.it? It's a browser based app that lets you create a "Room" where other people can join and all view and interact with a virtualized Firefox browser. The browser is able to accept mouse and keyboard inputs, and everyone sees the same video stream of the virtual browser. It's free and just requires you to set up an account.

As well as the Kestral solution Todd provided (thanks!), I discovered a third party library called Ceen.Httpd - this is a very lightweight HTTPd server that I was able to just drop into my project that supports SSL. https://github.com/kenkendk/ceenhttpd Using SSL was quite straight-forward, here is the sample code they provide, adapted to use SSL. ...

You could use gdal2tiles to generate an image pyramid that leaflet or openlayers can use to display your image in a browser. There is a fairly comprehensive tutorial or a github project that wraps the code for plain images like yours and generates the required html page.

Besides gdal2tiles, you could use vips. Details are in here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/51852934/10168903 If you want a GUI based solution, you could use Photoshop or Microsoft Image Composite Editor. You would need a plugin from zoomable.ca though.

You could create one or sevaral "heatmap" layers from your processed data. This layer then gets shown when the user has a birds-eye view (focuses on, say, the entire earth), but the "heatmap" eventually gets replaced with specific markers for the point data only when the user zoomed in and has chosen a smaller region of interest. You could also use "...

Personally, I am using Eclipse, because I use it for other languages. Tools for JavaScript developers creating Web applications, including a JavaScript IDE, tools for JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and XML.

The short answer is yes but here is some more context. So you want to make a web app for the results. You have a java app which is native windows. First note is Java is platform independent and can be compiled to Windows, Linux, Mac, etc. So the fact that it is windows doesn't mean much. What matters is that what you built would be the server for the web app....

From the experience of someone who has built a fair few websites with Grav, and maintains several plugins and themes for it, I'll try to answer points 1-7: Whilst the Admin-plugin contains just about every setting, you can change what is available for what user by creating groups with specific permissions. Editing a Page in Grav is a very similar experience ...

I use Smart WebMonitor for monitoring changes to webpages, the email alerts are very useful. It stores a screenshot of the page for each change, which is useful. It is already good at ignoring changes to sidebars etc. but you can filter out other parts of the page fairly easily as well.

If you are lucky, you can use the Document.lastModified Javascript function which should be available in most browsers. If the page is dynamically generated (IE: Generated just for your browsing) then it will show the the time/date when you loaded the page, which is pretty useless to you. However, if it is a static HTML page, it will show the last modified ...
