Textmas

Here’s basically how to set up your own merry textmas:

  1. Buy all the stuff.
  2. Set up your Twilio number
  3. Install the code on the raspberry pi and connect it to your wifi
  4. Mount it in the plastic box cut out a hole for the chargers, and for the four sockets and attaching the arduino and raspberry pi to the lid. Wire it all together patiently.
  5. Deploy to AppEngine.
  6. Make a sign (or alter the one below.)
  7. Put lights in your trees and plug it in!

What you’ll need:

We relied heavily on this awesome instructables to get started: http://www.instructables.com/id/Tweeting-Christmas-Tree/ But made some modifications. For the most part, it’s Arduino + Raspberry Pi + Twilio API + Google AppEngine
