Have an account on Twitter for your app to tweet on.
Obtain access keys to your account from dev.twitter.com
Press the button!
You will need to create an account if you don't have one already. Have your Consumer key/secret and Access token/secret from above handy. You will also need to provide a name and email address to serve as an admin for the app.
After deploying, you will need to follow up with a few commands using the Heroku Toolbelt:
heroku run --app YOURAPPNAME python manage.py createsuperuser heroku addons:open scheduler --app YOURAPPNAME
Replace YOURAPPNAME above with your app name from Heroku.
This will open a page titled Schedule recurring tasks for your app.
Add new job and paste the following in next to the
python manage.py tweet_next
You will also choose the frequency of posting here (
every 10 minutes).
If you need more granularity over the posting interval, see the advanced instructions below.
You are now ready to open your app and start adding tweets.
You can access your app at
yourappname.herokuapp.com or by running this command back in the prompt from earlier:
heroku open --app YOURAPPNAME

To create a normal user account, just go to Sign Up and fill out the form. Once you submit it, you'll see a "Verify Your E-mail Address" page. Go to your console to see a simulated email verification message. Copy the link into your browser. Now the user's email should be verified and ready to go.
To create an superuser account, use this command:
$ python manage.py createsuperuser
For convenience, you can keep your normal user logged in on Chrome and your superuser logged in on Firefox (or similar), so that you can see how the site behaves for both kinds of users.
To run the tests, check your test coverage, and generate an HTML coverage report:
$ coverage run manage.py test $ coverage html $ open htmlcov/index.html
Moved to Live reloading and SASS compilation.
This app comes with Celery.
To run a celery worker:
cd tweeter celery -A tweeter.taskapp worker -l info
Please note: For Celery's import magic to work, it is important where the celery commands are run. If you are in the same folder with manage.py, you should be right.
