Tour de France Slack Bot
TourDeFranceBot will notify a Slack channel/group for every stage during the Tour de France 2016.
It uses the unofficial letour.fr json API (the one used for their mobile app iOS/Android).
It will post a message :
- when a stage will start (with info about it + map)
- every telegrams from the feed (could be too verbose..)
Here is a preview of the Le Touquet-Paris-Plage - Lille Métropole stage (from 2014).
- PHP >= 5.3
- You need a token from Slack:
- Jump at https://api.slack.com/docs/oauth-test-tokens (you have to login)
- and you will find your token.
- Clone this repo
- Set up a cron to run every minute:
* * * * * cd /path/to/folder && php tourDeFranceNotifier.php >> tourDeFranceNotifier.log
Everything can be posted in 4 differents languages (de, en, es, fr). Spanish & Deutsch need to be done.
The code is ugly but it works ©
