Just a simple Python script I threw together to notify me through my Android phone if my reputation is changed. I created it for my own personal use but figured I might as well throw it out into the community.

The Python script and basic instructions on how to use it are located on Google Code. In order to use the script edit this portion:

#Personalization Items
site = 'stackoverflow'
usrid = '68172'
timeframe = (60*60)
#End Personalization Items

Droidstack now provides this functionality :)


There is already an Android widget called SOFlair that does a similar job. I think it doesn't use the API and possibly just screen-scrapes.

I installed it a few months ago, although it wasn't great as it has very little configuration and its update interval was too low.

    I actually have that installed as well, but it doesn't notify of rep changes. I created this script to provide a temporary solution until I create a better dedicated android app.
