Army of Awesome¶
Setting up the Army of Awesome Twitter Application¶
Create the Twitter application¶
Go to https://dev.twitter.com/apps/new and fill in the required fields. Also be sure to fill in a Callback URL, it can be any dummy URL as we override this value by passing in an oauth_callback URL. Set up the application for read-write access.
You will need to enter the consumer key and consumer secret in settings_local.py below.
Set the following settings in
TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY = <consumer key> TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET = <consumer secret> TWITTER_COOKIE_SECURE = False
To fetch tweets, run:
$ ./manage.py cron collect_tweets
You should now see tweets at /army-of-awesome.
Common replies should be defined in a wiki article with slug ‘army-of-awesome-common-replies’. The format for the article content is:
=Category 1= ==Reply 1== Reply goes here http://example.com/kb-article ==Reply 2== Another reply here =Category 2= ==Reply 3== And another reply
Note that replies can’t be over 140 characters long, including the @username and #fxhelp hash tag. Therefore, each reply defined here should not go over 125 characters. The reply must be plain text without any HTML or wiki syntax.
