Introducing my little app that tracks any product’s price on Amazon.

Project Link: https://trackerbase.herokuapp.com/

In this article, as I had written the documentation (at https://github.com/yewyewXD/React-Amazon-Price-Tracker), I will walk you through using this app step-by-step.

It might take a few seconds to load because Heroku (a hosting platform) will put my app to Sleep Mode if it's inactive for 30 minutes.

  1. Log in (you can log in as a guest) or create an account (please don't use your real info for this demo app). Note that guest mode will disable the database and backend CRUDs.

  2. View "dashboard" and click the "plus" button to track a product's price. In the "Product URL" field, you can either paste the link of any Amazon product detail page or simply use our demo link.

  3. Label your track record in the "Name" field, enter your ideal/target price in the "Expected Price" field, and hit the "Track" button.

Now your product is being tracked!

To edit, use the "Edit" or "Detail" button (it depends on your device).

To delete, select a track record, and then use the delete button.

To get the latest price info of all your tracked products, just click on "Update all".

Hi there! Thank you for checking it out. Sure! Please leave your contact info so that we can communicate better.

As the Oktoberfest is still ongoing, I will consider launching this repo as an open-source project and allow more people to join our fun!

What an app! I'm sure people would love it more if they could try it without having to create an account. Like, set an alert and only have to enter their email, then they will be alerted thru email when any price drops.
