Hyper Alerts

Hyper Alerts notifies people whenever someone posts to Facebook or Twitter.

Disclaimer

Hyper Alerts uses Facebook Query Language (FQL), which is no longer supported for new applications. Pending a rewrite of the Facebook adapter, you cannot use Hyper Alerts to get alerts for activity on Facebook.

Installation

Hyper Alerts requires Ruby, MongoDB and Redis to run. You should also have a good understanding of Ruby on Rails.

Workers

Hyper Alerts uses workers to synchronize with Facebook and Twitter. We use Sidekiq because it's threaded and that really works out when you're waiting for I/O. In fact, we wait so much that we've been running 50 threads per process.

# Start a worker to process jobs in the queue
$ sidekiq --concurrency 50

Schedulers

Most of Hyper Alerts' jobs need to happen automatically, like synchronizing pages or dispatching notifications. These jobs are enqueued by schedulers, which continously poll the database for changes and schedule jobs that are due.

# Schedule subscriptions that are due for notifications
$ rake subscriptions:dispatch

# Schedule Facebook pages that are due for synchronization
$ rake facebook:synchronize

Configuration

Hyper Alerts is configured from its .env file. You'll find a sample in the repository, but you will have to populate it with your own credentials.

Development

If you want to run Hyper Alerts on your local computer, you will need to alias "hyperalerts.dev" to localhost in etc/hosts and allow it in your Facebook application so you can log in.

# /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 hyperalerts.dev

Credits
