Welcome!
--------

Tickery is an open-source application written on Fluidinfo
(http://fluidinfo.com/). You can play with our running version at
http://tickery.net

Tickery provides a fun way to explore sets of Twitter friends. There's much
more to the story however, as its underlying data is stored in Fluidinfo.
This means it can be added to by anyone (i.e., you!), and searched on in
any way.

We've open-sourced Tickery to help programmers see the insides of a
substantial application written to use Fluidinfo. Although the Tickery
documentation is currently very light, we hope to be able to change this.
You're welcome to help, of course.

Learning about Tickery
----------------------

The best place to read an introduction to Tickery is in two articles on the
Fluidinfo blog:

  Meet Tickery
  http://blogs.fluidinfo.com/fluidinfo/2010/01/21/meet-tickery/

  Tickery, for programmers
  http://blogs.fluidinfo.com/fluidinfo/2010/01/21/tickery-for-programmers/

Running Tickery
---------------

You'll find instructions on how to run your own version of Tickery in the
doc directory. If you have Sphinx (http://sphinx.pocoo.org) installed, you
can build the documentation by running 'make' in the doc dir and then
looking at doc/_build/html/index.html in your browser. If you don't have
Sphinx installed and don't want to install it, just look directly at the
doc/*.rst files.

Questions?
----------

For discussion of Tickery, we suggest you join the Fluidinfo users mailing
list at http://groups.google.com/group/fluiddb-users or join us in
#fluidinfo on irc.freenode.net Please say hi, we're very interested in
helping people to understand both Tickery and Fluidinfo.


Happy hacking!
