Notes

Powered by diff-cam-engine (https://github.com/lonekorean/diff-cam-engine).

To run: npm install, then gulp (or gulp watch), then npm start. Everything is built to /dist. If you're in dev, hit http://localhost:3000 to run the web app.

In dev, you'll want to create a .env file in the root with the following contents (edit as appropriate):

process.env.ENVIRONMENT = 'dev';
process.env.PORT = 3000; // do not set in prod (auto-assigned by Heroku)
process.env.SESSION_SECRET = 'your secret string';
process.env.TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY = 'your twitter consumer key';
process.env.TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET = 'your twitter consumer secret';

Diff Cam Feed relies on a registered Twitter app. You can create one via Twitter Application Management. The TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY and TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET values above will be provided when you do so.

Images are not necessarily uploaded to the account used for registering the Twitter app. Rather, users will be prompted to sign in with their own twitter account, which is where the images will be uploaded.

This web app does require https to run in production. It will run fine under http on localhost, though.
