TodayStream

TodayStream is a news/headlines reader and weather app. It is designed in a modular fashion, to make adding data sources easy.

TodayStream ships with support for NewsAPI.org, Reddit, and DarkSky APIs. With the exception of Reddit, you'll need to obtain and set API keys in settings.php for TodayStream to be useful.

It currently determines the user's location for weather information based on IP address. You'll need to download the (free) MaxMind city-level geoIP database and keep it up-to-date. Other methods of obtaining location, such as with JavaScript APIs and user-configurable settings, are coming soon.

This application does not and will not store user location on the server.

API responses are cached in the database for a reasonable amount of time, to decrease latency and reduce (or eliminate) API costs. News item thumbnails are resized and stored in cache/thumb.

Setup Tips

  • Run composer install (or composer.phar install) to install dependency libraries
  • If you don't have any color in the navbar, run git submodule init and git submodule update.
