A simple web application that allows the Chicago Department of Public Health to monitor Chicago food-borne-illness-releated tweets, and respond in such a way that facilitates the submission of a 311 report.
FoodBorne uses several services, including Chicago's Open 311, Twitter, and a hosted MongoDB service which classifies tweets as food-borne-illness related. To setup a development environment, you will need to obtain api keys for Open 311 and Twitter, as well as MongoDB credentials from the Smart Chicago Collaborative.
Once you have obtained the necessary keys and credentials, copy the contents of
config/settings.yml.example into a new file named
config/settings.yml, and fill in the necessary information.
There are two, namespaced rake tasks for fetching tweets:
Pulls from a dummy @foodpoisonuser Twitter account.
Pulls from the MongoDB classifier. As mentioned above, you will need credentials provided by the Smart Chicago Collaborative.
