chronicle.rb) is a script that allows you to post with full access to all of the options available on the blockchain. Some of these options are not available in the normal web UI. For instance, you can set a maximum payout of $5 or upvote your post with any percent.
To use this Radiator script:
$ sudo apt-get install ruby-full git openssl libssl1.0.0 libssl-dev $ gem install bundler
$ gem install bundler
I've tested it on various versions of ruby. The oldest one I got it to work was:
ruby 2.0.0p645 (2015-04-13 revision 50299) [x86_64-darwin14.4.0]
First, clone this gist and install the dependencies:
$ git clone https://gist.github.com/e8325ad50b42f1fd9d01d3dddde397ef.git chronicle $ cd chronicle $ bundle install
Then run it:
$ ruby chronicle.rb
Check here to see an updated version of this script:
Typically, you can upgrade to the latest version by this command, from the original directory you cloned into:
$ git pull
Usually, this works fine as long as you haven't modified anything. If you get an error, try this:
$ git stash --all $ git pull --rebase $ git stash pop
If you're still having problems, I suggest starting a new clone.
Problem: What does this error mean?
chronicle.yml:1: syntax error, unexpected ':', expecting end-of-input
Solution: You ran
ruby chronicle.yml but you should run
Problem: Everything looks ok, but every time Chronicle tries to post, I get this error:
`from_base58': Invalid version (RuntimeError)
Solution: You're trying to vote with an invalid key.
Make sure the
author item has the correct account name and WIF posting key.
Problem: The node I'm using is down.
Is there a list of nodes?
Solution: Yes, special thanks to @ripplerm.
