Beehive is like an open-source, self-hosted version of IFTTT.

... and it supports Mastodon!

Check it out: github.com/muesli/beehive

Nope, and I must admit I haven't heard of Snips before. It's easy to write new bees, though 😉

@fribbledom It's an AI assistant thing. Would be interesting to be able to activate stuff with that.

Nice! This looks like it could be very useful.

@fribbledom I'm all over that. Thanks for the heads up. IFTTT always irked me for various reasons (randomly stopped working, bad customer support), but the concept is genius.

@fribbledom Ha, I was literally just going to go searching for exactly that description, but hadn't gotten around to it yet. I'll have to check it out!

@fribbledom and just like that, one of my projects gets superseded

@fribbledom Is my understanding correct that the only data Beehive persists is contained within the beehive.conf file? So this is all I would need to backup?

(Or can individual Hives store additional data or state information, e.g. which RSS entries they have already processed etc.?)

@arx

Correct, there's only beehive.conf currently. That also means Hives can't store any state - just yet!

That feature is obviously on the roadmap, though!

@fribbledom this looks awesome, not sure how I have missed this!

@fribbledom

Hi! Thanks for making #beehive ! Does the Mastodon hive work with Pleroma? 🐝​

@ninja

Afraid beehive still requires username/password based authentication with the API, which the Pleroma compat-layer doesn't support.

It's on my ever-so-lengthy (😒) todo list, but I can't make any promises when I'll get to it.

Sorry!

@fribbledom

No worries! Found a CLI util, will try to get it working with Beehive :ablobsmilehappy:
@fribbledom @ninja I'm currently fiddling with `mattn/go-mastodon` for posting to Pleroma with username/password auth; I can probably have a look at the beehive stuff if I get a chance.

@zimpenfish

Oh? Maybe it does work then? I must admit I haven't tested it myself, it's just the feedback I got from other users.

@ninja

@fribbledom @zimpenfish

Thanks peeps. The python toot CLI app also works with username / password auth. Will try beehive as well. Have a great weekend!
