Collectr: collect and browse your links

Build Status Coverage Status Dependency Status

Collectr is a project that aims to collect and asynchronously process your links, to sum them up.

It's a django based project, and nvie/rq is used to process everything asynchronously.

For now it supports links from:

  • Twitter using the streaming API
  • IRC using a script in your IRSSI client
  • RSS
  • and a bookmarklet


The project requires a lots of dependancies:

  • Django in version 1.5
  • Logbook in version 0.3
  • PyYAML in version 3.10
  • South in version 0.7.5
  • certifi in version 0.0.8
  • chardet in version 1.0.1
  • python-social-auth in version 0.2.19
  • httplib2 in version 0.7.4
  • lxml in version 2.3.4
  • nltk in version 2.0.1
  • oauth2 in version 1.5.211
  • oauthlib in version 0.1.3
  • redis in version 2.4.13
  • requests in version 0.13.1
  • rq in version 0.3.0
  • rsa in version 3.1.1
  • times in version 0.4
  • tweepy in version 1.9
  • webarticle2text
  • tastypie in version 0.9.12
  • praw in version 2.1.0


As it is a django project, you need to edit your collectr/ to add your database credentials. You should probably add your own TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY and your TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET informations.

Oh, and your own SECRET_KEY too o/


This project requires a lot of asynchronous process to run. I usually have 6 process:

  • The uwsgi proceess
  • The ./ twitter_collector
  • The ./ reddit_collector
  • The rqworker rss_collector which periodically check for new rss
  • The rqworker link_indexing -v which unqueue link from redis
  • The rqscheduler which schedule new rss fetch
