Make a (Twitter) bot with Gomix

Gomix (originally Hyperdev) is a pretty cool tool that lets you create websites and web apps right in your browser, removing a lot of the complexity of setting up your server or installing and managing dependencies.

Gomix is partly a throwback to the heydays of software development and the internet, when it was a lot easier to get started making cool things. More specifically, it’s a combination of a web app store, an in-broswer tool for editing Node.js code in collaboration with other Gomix users and a cloud hosting environment to run the app. Gomix will be part of FogBugz, Fog Creek’s suite of tools for software development teams.


I was immediately excited to try it out, so I put together a quick Twitter bot template. The project is now featured in the Handy bots section, go check it out!
