Beeminder Forum

Forum Integration?


#1

I have a couple Beeminder goals that are of the formula “post to x Beeminder forum thread every n days.” I’d really like to make these automatic. Is there some way I can trigger a data point for a goal every time I post to a specific thread?


#2

I think akrasia can do something with the beeminder forum post count if that’s enough already. I would so hope that @csu would be more active so everybody could work on simple integrations like this.

Each thread has an RSS feed https://forum.beeminder.com/t/forum-integration/5060.rss
And each user has an RSS feed https://forum.beeminder.com/u/apolyton/activity.rss
You can beemind new entries on those (for example with IFTTT or Zapier)

Hmmm… I guess I could just beemind the thread’s RSS with IFTTT, it’s just weird that other people posting to it would also post a datapoint…

Anyway, it’s super cool that those are available!
