As usual, you can find details on GitHub, but let me go through the most interesting changes.
New Event Kind: transfer.made
I added a new event that you can watch for.
transfer.made is triggered when a transfer is made from or to an account you are interested it. Like this you can easily receive a notification when someone sends you money.
New Event Kind: descendant.published
Another event kind added is called
descendant.published and you can use it to watch for any content descendant published. What does that mean? You just enter any content URL as copied from Steemit.com, be it a post or a comment, and you will receive a notification when any descendant, i.e. reply, is added on any depth. Optionally, you can also limit the depth you are interested it, i.e. limiting the depth to 1 will only trigger a notification when an immediate reply is added.
The notification format is the same as for the
What Is Next?
I am thinking about adding support for email notifications. This will take more time to implement, but the user value would be huge. Not everybody is interested in Slack messages. Emails would be probably batched somehow, not really real-time, to prevent too much spam and also save some emails. This will probably require some paid mailing service, but I guess that I will simply pay for it from what I make on these release posts for now.
I will also keep looking into issues open on GitHub.
Support the Project
As usual, any support is greatly appreciated. SteemWatch is a free service for now. You can just upvote this post, or send some money directly to @void if you feel like doing so.
In any case, have fun with SteemWatch, I hope that you like the improvements!
