Touchstone Bot

We built a Twitter bot that tweets anytime a Touchstone Climbing gym sets new routes or boulder problems. We used a combination of Rails, PostgreSQL, Heroku and IFTTT to make it all work.

First, we built a Rails app, which is hosted for free on Heroku, that periodically scrapes and stores data from Then, we integrated with IFTTT by building an applet so we could post those updates on Twitter.
