Eat More

Eat More is a Telegram bot that reminds you to eat more.

License: MIT Backlog on WIP

I am open sourcing the code to give you an idea of what it takes to build such a bot and hopefully inspire you to create your own.

Installation

I wrote these steps from memory. It's likely that I missed something. If you run into any problems please message me on Telegram and very clearly explain what's not working. What you tried. What you expected to happen. What did happen. Try this:

  1. git clone https://github.com/marckohlbrugge/eatmore.git

  2. Create a Telegram bot using @BotFather

  3. Copy sample.env to .env and fill out each variable

  4. bundle install

  5. Configure your database in config/database.yml

  6. Create the database rails db:create

  7. On production rails telegram:bot:set_webhook to configure the webhook to communicate with Telegram. Or in development rails telegram:bot:poller to configure the poller.

Don't want to use S3?

I use Heroku for hosting which doesn't support file uploads so I'm using S3 instead. If you want to simplify your setup you can configure Shrine to use your local file system instead. You can do this in config/initializers/shrine.rb.

Want to join a community of makers?

Eat More was built in public in 1 day on WIP. We are a community of makers motivating each other to ship. Join us.

Questions, feature requests, bugs, etc
