StackStorm tutorial pack
You will need a workstation:
If you don't have a linux based workstation, you'll need to provision one and load StackStorm.
This can be done by getting access to a clean installation of Ubuntu Mate: (https://ubuntu-mate.org/blog/ubuntu-mate-xenial-final-release/)
You can install this in a VM and setup according to your location. Power on the workstation and login!
To setup your workstation check out the guide here(http://www.wookieware.com/st2-workstation.pptx). Clicking this link will download the guide.
In this tutorial we will build a stackstorm workflow that will get the Astronomical Picture of the Day (apod) from a nasa website. Once we get the data from the nasa server we will assign it to a local variable and post a message in the rabbitmq bus.
To do this we will load the rabbitmq pack and test writing messages to it.
Finally we will write a sensor that monitors the rabbitmq looking for new messages, if found, we will call another stackstorm action to write the link to a html index file.
