Subject Webapp (based on Rich's script)
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2015 07:08:41 GMT
Inspired by Rich's work on the script I have just completed a somewhat useful webapp.
My initial focus was to address the two pain points Rich identified with his script:

1)      Need to manually filter results to remove false positives

2)      Scheduling tweets

I tackled the first one by making it a crowdsourced thing (i.e.  events are imported into
a database and anyone can mark it as not applicable). For the second I've provided an easy
way to submit tweets to twitter and bufferapp (an application I use for scheduling tweets,
free accounts are available).

For this to be truly usable (especially item 1) we need to deploy it to a running server somewhere.
I don't really want to do that until I've put a rate limit on the number of times an import
from can be performed (since this is using Rich's personal key). However, it is
workable right now and personally I believe it already provides a significant performance
improvement for the tweets feature.

It's in SVN ( the readme should be enough to
get you going. It's a couple of Docker containers so you will need to install Docker. I'd
really appreciate contributions and will be happy to help clarify anything needed to get you
up and running.
