Who is Don?
Don is the friendly Robot at What Cheer.
For Big Omaha 2012 we built Small Talk, a chat application that only conference attendees could use. To add some fun we built Don, a robot you could chat with.
This is the guts of Don, on display for all to see.
How do I boot him up?
$ python app.py
$ foreman start
How do I put him on Heroku?
$ heroku apps:create --stack=cedar $ heroku ps:scale web=1 $ heroku addons:add redistogo:nano $ git push heroku master
How do I make him smarter?
Edit (or add) brain files. These are regular expression sets.
In the future we hope to make this language a bit simpler and easier to understand for non-programmers.
We are What Cheer, we make fancy websites. And robots.
