Beehive boosted

Sup fediverse,

My PR for @beehive made it into master \o/

Beehive now to supports a variety of new Actions & Events for the :mastodon: Mastodon hive.

You may want to check them out.

You can now support the development of Beehive directly on GitHub!

Chip in and help me spend some more time on anticipated updates & much needed fixes.

GitHub will even match each donation for the first year!

@lrhodes

I do personally. What issue are you running into? Happy to help out! Feel free to DM me here or at @fribbledom

@thibaultamartin @fribbledom

Yeah, Beehive is super easy to extend and write new hives for. Sadly the admin interface is still lacking, as the chains could do a lot more than we can currently expose in the UI. Huginn is a little more polished in that regard.

Work in progress, though!

@thibaultamartin @fribbledom

Yeah, I'd say we try to tackle the same problem, maybe from a slightly different perspective.

Obviously I'm biased, but while Huginn still is the more complete & mature project, Beehive is probably a lot easier to deploy, extend and the templating language behind it makes it incredibly flexible.

@Nikolai_Kingsley

This isn't supposed to be a snappy response, instead I'm really wondering:

what part of the introduction in the README is hard to understand & confusing to you? I probably need to do a better job at explaining it.

Beehive 0.3.2 is out!

We've added a bunch of new hives in this release, so you can now connect your bees with Prometheus, Discord and TravisCI!

Also: a new template helper for JSON data!

OpenBSD porting efforts 

@rocket357 @fribbledom

Of course! I can do another point release tonight. I guess it'd be worth it for the newly added hives alone.

@lrhodes

Great idea! Could open a ticket on GitHub for that? We could probably expose other actions and events as well. Ideas are always welcome!

Another week, another new hive that joins the party:

You can now connect your Beehive with Discord and react to chat messages or even post your own messages.

Thanks @CalmByte for another fantastic contribution!

Not two weeks have passed since we released v0.3, and we can already announce some new Hives that made it into Beehive's development branch!

Support for Prometheus & TravisCI has been added, as well as triggering events via incoming SMTP connections.

Thanks to @CalmByte and mkrauser for their fantastic contributions!

Want to connect Prometheus to your Beehive and expose values of all kinds of events to it?

Because you can totally do that now!

PrometheusBee by @CalmByte just got merged into git master. New Docker images should be up any minute!

@MatStace

Good to know! We'll probably also set up a proper app and switch to using authtokens for the Mastodon API. That should make linking your account rather straight forward.

@MatStace

The terminal output is pretty verbose as it is right now. You should see it printing out any auth errors that occur.

The next release will contain a new admin interface that also exposes the full logs for each bee.

We're still looking for packagers (in particular Debian & Ubuntu).

Want to help us out? Say hello!

Hint: Packaging Go programs is usually very straight forward, as it's a statically linked binary with no dependencies.

@kelbot @fribbledom

It's rather similar, really. Deployment is easier, as it's written in Go. It also runs nicely on a Pi, not sure how well huginn behaves there nowadays.

@camjc

Not much of a difference if I'm being honest. Beehive lacks the visual flow editor, but supports Go's powerful template engine.

Some say Beehive's deployment is a lot more straight forward though: it's not built on Node.js, but Go instead.

Beehive 0.3, an open-source event & automation system is out!

So many fixes plus 17(!) new hives in this release!

Now your bees can interact with GitHub, Facebook, Mastodon or OpenWeatherMap, to name just a few of the new supported services.
