Turret.IO Support

Golapa now supports Turret.IO as an alternative to sending an email when a user signs up.

By default, users that sign up will have an attribute signedup set to 1 making it easy to create a target for those users

  • Get the Turret.IO Go client
> goapp get github.com/turretIO/turret-io-go
  • Add the Turret.IO Go client library to the list of imports in appengine.go
import (
	_ "fmt"
const api_key = "<YOUR TURRET.IO API KEY>"
const api_secret = "<YOUR TURRET.IO API SECRET>"
  • Uncomment the ServeHTTP method of AppEngineTurret in appengine.go

  • Edit appengine.go and change http.HandleFunc("/worker", newAppEngineEmailHandler) to http.HandleFunc("/worker", newAppEngineTurret)

Re-deploy your app and check for errors. Be sure to test that users are successfully being added to whatever targets you create with Turret.IO
