Send fun cat factz every hour for your friends using the Twillio API. App written for the Ballmer Peak-A-Thon (5/12/2012) programming contest. ballmerpeakathon.com
Update the config/initializers/twilio.rb file with your own Twilio API key.
To record the SMS messages that users respond back with :
- If you're running locally, setup a localtunnel with localtunnel.io localtunnel -k ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub 3000 - Config Twilio to post back to the URL provided by localtunnel (e.g. 4u8s.localtunnel.com/transmit_cat_facts/incoming)
Setup the cron process (to send the repeat cat factz).
