I was hoping to know if there are different ways of refreshing a website 'www.mywebsite.com'
Midori is the most favoured as you can do the following from the terminal:
midori -a http://www.mywebsite.com/ -i 120 -e Fullscreen
This will open midori to open www.mywebsite.com and refresh at every 120 seconds (= 2 minutes).
There is also the option of writing a bash script, in which the code 'simulates' as if the F5 (aka refresh key) is being pressed :
#!/bin/bash DISPLAY=:0 xdotool search --name ci-monitor windowactivate --sync key F5 >> ~/log/tmp.log 2>&1
and calling it from the crontab. The frequency can be altered/set via the crontab.
Q: Is there any other way of auto refreshing at set intervals?
