What is this I don't even
- Mine John Scalzi's twitter feed for band names.
You'll need a unix-style environment (linux, terminal in a mac, or similar), with python and hg installed (and virtualenv if you follow my installation advice).
Installing (if you know enough to do this differently you don't need my advice):
$ hg clone https://email@example.com/tikitu/my_next_band $ cd my_next_band $ virtualenv --no-site-packages . $ bin/pip install zc.buildout $ bin/buildout
See the script's help for usage instructions:
$ bin/my_next_band -h
It claims that the arguments --cache-file and --output-file are optional, but that is bunkum. The first gives the filename to store progress in (in a json format, containing all tweets collected so far and a record of where in the stream we've got to), the second says where to write the html to. You probably also want to give --log-file.
