FAQ

  1. How often are my searches terms updated? - By default each search term is refreshed every minute. You can adjust the query rate under the options menu.

  2. How often is the trend data updated? - Sideline refreshes its trend data every 5 minutes. It will grab whatever is the latest data available from Twitter at that time.

  3. Can I imported pre-defined search groups and related terms? - Sideline does support importing of pre-defined search groups. This is useful for loading up a large amount of specific search groups and custom search queries without laboring through the UI each time. To use this create a basic text file with a .ssf extension (Sideline Search Format). In that text file you will define your search groups and custom searches using JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). There is a example file included with the Sideline source code called sample.ssf. That example demonstrates defining two search groups and several different searches within each.

Additional Notes

  • Sideline does phone home on startup. This is done as a safety precaution so that we can put the application in maintenance mode in the event that a security issue is identified. We'd take it out if we could, but our security policy prohibits this.
