discover new products, give feedback, help each other
Open Hunt is a brand new community for fans and builders of early stage technology products. We aim to be completely open and transparent, without insiders or gatekeepers who control who gets listed and who gets left out.

Open Hunt currently uses Twitter authentication. To dev locally, you'll need to create an app on Twitter.com and use the auth keys they provide you.
1) Create a dev app with your twitter account: https://apps.twitter.com/app/new
set the name to something unique (something like "Open Hunt dev - [your github username]")
set description / website to anything
set the callback url to http://goo.gl/QVYCy (a shortlink that points to http://localhost:3000/auth/twitter/callback)
2) Change the permissions to "Read Only"
in "Application Settings -> Access Level", click "modify app permissions"
3) Click on the tab "Keys and Access Tokens". Then create a new file at
config/settings.local.ymlwith the content:
# pull the value for "Consumer Key (API Key)" twitter_key: "PASTE_REAL_KEY_HERE"
pull the value for "Consumer Secret (API Secret)"
Configure an ENV variable locally for
DATABASE_URL. Configuration instructions here.
