hackage2twitter: Send new Hackage releases to Twitter

[ bsd3, distribution, program, web ] [ Propose Tags ]

Build on the feed2twitter library, this program reads the Hackage RSS feed and tweets each new release to Twitter.

The Hackage feed is read only once. To keep updating, call this program every few minutes in a cron job.

A local cache of the last 20 tweets is kept in a file to make sure no duplicates are sent.
