    RE-EVALUATE LIVEBLOGS

  • Complexity.

  • Simple

  • // Let's loop through each one, and add the response to post meta. // As we get posts, also push those to the main $posts array. // Reversing this so that we have some better logic for updating posts. // Ideally, you don't need to loop through every page, you could just // update the most recent page or two. for ( $i = 0; $i < $times; $i++ ) { // Fetch a batch of posts $response = $this->fetch_and_parse( $url, $i ); $more_posts = $response['response']['posts']; $more_posts = $this->clean_tumblr_response( $more_posts );

    if ( ! empty( $more_posts ) ) { update_post_meta( $post_id, 'liveblog_posts_page_' . $i, $more_posts ); }

    // Add each of the posts to the main post array. foreach ( $more_posts as $post ) { $posts[] = $post; } }

  • This is silly.

  • Make posts, damnit.

  • Slack

  • Livebot

  • Livebot is a node application that listens for requests from Slack and responds with requests to a WordPress REST API endpoint to manage liveblog posts. The application is best thought of as a middleware that translates requests between the Slack server and WordPress. The application itself has no external dependencies (e.g., database, cache), making the application very easy to run.
