Discourse Feed Bot


(Diego Barreiro) #1

Hey there :wave:

I’ve created this Telegram Bot to help users to get notified when a new topic is released on any Discourse community:

Check the Discourse branch


A demo is avaliable here:

The bot can be hosted in the same server as the community, so you won’t have to buy or request a new one!


Installation

To install the bot, follow this steps:

  1. Install MySQL server for your OS
  2. Clone the repo: git clone https://github.com/barreeeiroo/TeBoRs/ -b discourse
  3. Go to the dir: cd TeBoRs
  4. Edit the config.py file, and complete it with your data:
