Huginn is a system for building "agents" to automate tasks online. My main goal is to use Huginn as a replacement for Yahoo Pipes, mostly for cleaning up my RSS feeds. Possible other projects would by to try running Twitter bots using Huginn.

Setup (on Heroku)

This was not a straightforward as the deploy to Heroku instructions seemed to imply. Possibly that not having used Heroku (nor Ruby) before did not make it any simpler.

  1. Sign up for Heroku
  2. Install Heroku Toolbelt
  3. $ heroku login
  4. Clone the Huginn Git repo
  5. $ gem install bundler (this presupposes a working Ruby install)
  6. $ cd <path>/heroku
  7. $ ./bin/bundle
  8. Ran into an error when trying to install libv8 for Ruby (xcode-select: Error: No Xcode is selected.)
    1. solved by setting the Xcode path: $ sudo xcode-select -switch /Library/Developer/
    2. Run $ ./bin/bundle again
  9. Ran into an error when trying to install mysql2 for Ruby (ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.)
    1. solved by (re?)installing mysql: $ brew install mysql
    2. Run $ ./bin/bundle again
  10. $ ./bin/setup_heroku
  11. Success!
