Google Calendar Ebay reminder for Greasemonkey

kategori: Programming
Walter Mantovani yazmış,

I create some modifications to the original script made by Tilman Vogel due to dates language format in ebay auctions and recent updates to ebay styles

You can edit lines from 68 to 130 to match your language month names and cgi ebay site used

This script allow you to create Google Calendar Events from Ebay auctions.

Stay tuned for future updates and please report any bug or new months translations to darkoddio[at]gmail[dot]com
or leave a comment or suggestion



If you have problems installing this script clicking on top right “install” button, try press F5 after viewing the source code script.

    Many thanks for this, Walter!

    The script is great! Thank you! There is a problem: the Google button and date parsing is breaking time countdown on

  5. Hi vmk, the script is not broken: simply in that page the end auction date is not shown (I don’t know why), so the script cannot “imagine” it 😀

    Thank for your fantastic script ! Until now, it worked very well. But recently, a problem occurred. Instead of the google calendar icon, I have this message : “could not parse end date” . I really don’t know why but perhaps, perhaps, this is due to the fact that in french, the month of December has an accent on the “e”, like that : “Décember”.
    An example : for a french ebay url :
    The date is written like that : (06 déc. 2009 10:00:35 Paris)

    Have a good day, Mister !

    I had to modify the code for the german site:
    Line 151:
    myMonths[“mär”] = “03”;

    Line 247:
    parseddate = endtime.textContent.match(/(\d+)[.]?\s([a-züöäA-Z]+)[.]?\s(\d+)\s+(\d+):(\d+):(\d+)\s+(\w+)/);


  8. ikarus GERMANY says:

    After some thinking and wondering, i modified the script to auto-set the ebay site, because i often visit the us and uk sites and manually switching is a PITA.

    My version: (feel free to post as update or modify as you like)
