Required tables will be genereted automatically by the app.


To run the bot locally, try:

$ bundle install
$ SELBOT_CHANNEL=#my-test-channel bundle exec ruby -I lib bin/selbot2.rb

In production, use:

$ OPEN_ISSUE_INTERVAL=1800 bundle exec ruby -Ilib bin/selbot2.rb

For use with youtube one needs to create an API Key and set that as "youtube.conf" environment variable.
