Do you know any good way to run an automated script on a Mac? It has to support CURL and run on my local computer.

If you do, that would be great :)

If you want to run a shell script, you can look into cron jobs to make it automatic (there are a bunch of tools you can use to set up cron jobs on a Mac). I also believe that Mac OS comes with a cURL library preinstalled, so you can use that in the script.

Yes, but shell doesn't really allow for scripting (such as if and equals)

Yes it does, you just need to learn how to use it. ;)

I ended up using node.js


Speaking of which, what is your opinion on Node?

I don't know enough about it to have an informed opinion.
