Must be hundreds of framework of what im looking for, but I dont know what it is called. What im looking for is a framework for getting info from various websites and send emails to persons when contents changes.
For instance, "see if the new montly government report has been uploaded", "or do an online search on a government website for insider trading of a particular company". Send an email with the info.
