Reminds yourself to keep your GitHub streak going (with a friendly email reminder). Keep your GitHub streak going just like this Ryan guy did.
heroku create heroku addons:create scheduler heroku addons:create sendgrid heroku config:set TOemail@example.com heroku config:set GITHUB_USERNAME=your_github_username git push heroku master
Then go to https://addons-sso.heroku.com/apps/your_app_name/addons/scheduler:standard and set the UTC time to the appropriate time you'd like. For example, I want my reminder to check at 6pm Los Angeles time so I set it to 2am UTC.
That's it. You can forget this app is even running.
Click to cloud (beta)
You can optionally install using
click-to-cloud. Click to cloud is a binary I'm building to make it easier to deploy
small application to cloud Paas like Heroku. I personally, use this approach, but your mileage may vary.
First, install click-to-cloud on your machine.
Second, run the following command.
click-to-cloud --repo https://github.com/scottmotte/github-streaker.git
Make sure you set the TO and GITHUB_USERNAME variables. After you have installed your application to Heroku.
cp .env.example .env
Configure with your credentials.
