RSS Joiner

Ausca has a feed combiner which enables you to generate your own RSS feeds from various different sources.

The API is very simple:

require "ausca"

rss = Ausca::RSS::Joiner.new({
  :feeds => 
    [ "http://www.topix.com/rss/popular/topstories", "http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/rss.xml" ],
  :max_items => 50,
  :output_path => "feed.rss",
  :version => "2.0",
  :title => "test title",
  :description => "test description",
  :link => "test link",
  :author => "test author"  
})

# Fetch source feeds and generate the output
rss.generate

Twitter Bot

The Twitter bot searches for relevent content and automatically follows people who are talking about topics of interest.

The bot can also optionally favourite and retweet relevent content in order to increase the chances of a followback.

The API is as follows:

require 'ausca'

bot = Ausca::Twitter::Bot.new({
  :consumer_key => TWITTER_API_KEY,
  :consumer_secret => TWITTER_API_SECRET,
  :access_token => TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN,
  :access_token_secret => TWITTER_ACCESS_SECRET,
  :config_filename => "config.json",
  :search => "#awesome -rt",
  :want_num_retweets => 1,
  :want_num_favorites => 3
})

# Run the bot once
bot.run
