Tricklepost - Post an RSS/Atom feed your microblog Copyright (c) 2009 Zach Copley License: GNU Affero General Public License v3 (See the LICENSE file). Tricklepost tries to mitigate the impedance mismatch between RSS/Atom feeds and microblogs. Some feeds have a really high volume of new items and/or many items appear in the feed at one time. If many new items in a feed get posted at one time your microblog you may end up with a "post flood," which can be super annoying to your microblog subscribership. Tricklepost lets you enter a delay to wait in between posts to ensure only one new item gets posted to your microblog every so often, which is much cooler. It handles multiple feeds and microblog accounts. Requirements - PHP5.2.x - MySQL 5.x - PHP cURL extension - SimplePie (should be included with this source) - Cron, or some other scheduler if you want to run Tricklepost automatically Installation - Use mysqladmin to create a new db for holding feeds - copy tricklepost.ini.sample to tricklepost.ini and customize your you MySQL DB connection info - load the tricklepost.sql file (creates a table to hold items) - copy feeds.ini.sample to feeds.ini and customize (should be self explanatory) - Setup a cron job to run feedpoller.php and tricklepost.php (see crontab.sample)
