NAME gnip-expander SYNOPSIS gnip-expander [mode] [options]+ DESCRIPTION gnip-expander relays an existing gnip publisher's activites and re-publishers a stream with all http/https links published in a shortened form (bit.ly, etc) normalized to their long form. gnip-expander attempts to setup a keyword filter on the src publisher but does not require the publisher to support keyword filters - if the publisher does the entire stream is relayed. like all gnip.rb client code gnip-expander expects to find your gnip account info configured in ~/.gnip.yml in a file that looks like username: gnip-username password: gnip-password although you can pass this information in using the command line switches of course. gnip-expander keeps track of successfully relayed buckets in a directory (~/.gnip-expander by default). although you can pass in the starting point with the --timestamp switch gnip-expander is quite good at doing 'the right thing' with respect to which buckets to process. in general it simply processes all unprocessed buckets as quickly as possible and then proceeds to process any new bucket as it appears, polling only when all buckets are processed and new ones have yet to appear. PARAMETERS mode (1 ~> mode) one of start|stop|restart|pid for daemon control. all imply --daemon. --timestamp=timestamp, -t (0 ~> time(timestamp)) timestamp to begin relaying activites from --gnip-username=gnip-username (0 ~> gnip-username) you gnip username - default from ~/gnip.yml --gnip-password=gnip-password (0 ~> gnip-password) you gnip password - default from ~/gnip.yml --src-publisher=src-publisher (0 ~> src-publisher=twitter) publisher whose posts we want to expand --daemon, -D run continuously in the background --timeout=timeout (0 ~> integer(timeout=60)) polling interval in daemon mode --basedir=basedir (0 ~> basedir=/Users/ahoward/.gnip-expander) base directory for logs, config, pidfile, etc. --verbosity=verbosity, -v (0 ~> verbosity=info) one of debug(4)|info(3)|warn(2)|error(1)|fatal(0) --help, -h EXAMPLES . run at the console in verbose mode gnip-expander -v4 . run in the background in daemon mode gnip-expander start && tail -F ~/.gnip-expander/log . stop a background daemon gnip-expander stop . restart a background daemon gnip-expander restart . report the pid of the background daemon or currently running gnip-expander gnip-expander pid
