Planet-hackNY

Planet-hackNY is a blog aggregator for hackNY fellows, powered by Pluto.

Adding Your Blog

If you are a hackNY fellow, you can add your blog by submitting a patch or pull request. Edit feeds_list.txt and add a line at the bottom with both the link to your blog's RSS feed and your full name, separated by a tab (\t).

Note: The separator must be a tab, not spaces. Your favorite text editor may be configured to convert tabs to spaces on save, in which case you may want to try nano (or ed, for bonus points).

Configuration & Setup

You will need the following environment variables defined:

#Any value will do, as long as it is secret and difficult to predict
export COOKIE_SECRET=""

#Database credentials
export MONGODB_USERNAME=""
export MONGODB_PASSWORD=""
export MONGODB_URL=""
export MONGODB_DATABASE=""

If you are running the app on Heroku, run:

heroku config:set COOKIE_SECRET=$COOKIE_SECRET MONGODB_USERNAME=$MONGODB_USERNAME MONGODB_PASSWORD=$MONGODB_PASSWORD MONGODB_URL=$MONGODB_URL MONGODB_DATABASE=$MONGODB_DATABASE

which will copy the values from your current environment to use on the Heroku server.

If you are running mongodb locally (or if your mongodb instance isn't protected by a username/password, you can ommit the MONGODB_USERNAME and MONGODB_PASSWORD variables; however, you will need to delete the call to the Login method:

    err = mongodb_session.DB(MONGODB_DATABASE).Login(MONGODB_USERNAME, MONGODB_PASSWORD)

would then be replaced with

    err = mongodb_session.DB(MONGODB_DATABASE)
