General Hobby Stock Checker

Project Info Stock Checker

Scrapes and downloads currently in stock items from

I built this because their website is not so fun to navigate and find in stock items. The node script goes to their 'all products' page and goes through each page getting the product's name, a link to the details page, it's price (and discounted price), an image, and the stock status.

It takes ~20sec to run and is mainly constrained by network speed. Hopefully it isn't an unnecessary burden on their website!


  • Install Git, NodeJS, and Python 2.7.9 (or later; required for jsdom module)
  • Install gulp and bower in global modules. npm install -g gulp bower
  • git clone
  • npm install && bower install && node index.js && gulp wiredep && gulp serve

If any one of the commands in the chain fails then you will need to investigate each command individually.

Once the installation has setup the node environment and built the page it is only necessary to run node index.js to update the stock list.

Built using the Yeoman gulp-webapp generator. generator-gulp-webapp.
