Beeminder Forum

Want to get started with autodialer, but PHP is scary, plz help thanks.

Been beeminding for a while now, recently wanted to try out API stuff to maximize beemindy-ness. Completely new to all this PHP and localhost stuff.

Got as far as downloading the files from this post [ Help yourself to some API files ] and enabling localhost on my computer, but attempting to access the php files throws a 404.3 and gives me some stuff about MIME types and handlers. I guess I haven’t finished setting everything up, but I’m completely lost as for what to do next. Any pointers?

Any chance that you know how to use docker? I have dockerized the beeminder dashboard so you just need docker and then to change the config files: https://github.com/openmedi/beedash

I’m the person who wrote the autodialer, but I don’t really know PHP well enough to actually help! (When it comes to programming, everything I’ve done has used duct tape and trial and error.) I’m gonna tag in a few people so that enough eyes get on it for someone to maybe be able to point you in the right direction.
