Nostalgia

Nostalgia is a Little Printer publication that delivers a photo from your Flickr photostream from today's date, any year in the past.

It's a simple Rails application that's designed to run on Heroku.

Installation

Add your Flickr keys, and a new secret token for Rails. To generate a token, open the Rails console and type SecureRandom.hex(64):

cp config/env.yml.example config/env.yml

Create a Heroku app with a Postgres database. One dyno should be enough, and a free dev database. You should probably also add the Logentries TryIt and New Relic add-ons to gain some insight.

Memcached

Nostalgia uses the Dalli gem to connect to a Memcached store. Get the free Memcachier add-on on Heroku with heroku addons:add memcachier:dev.
