Bitcoin Automated Alert Mock-up (SatRday 2018)

Hi!

This gist contains all of the necessary files to set up an automated alert on the price of Bitcoin, as covered in my talk at SatRday 2018.

You should be able to pop these files into a folder, fill out the necessary config at the top of 'Analysis_template.R' and have a working Rscript and Rmarkdown pair. In order to get this running on a schedule, you will need to hook 'BitcoinAlert_template.bat' to a task in Windows Task Scheduler. And that's it! If you experience any issues, please feel free to ask questions at vishalin.pillay@outlook.com.
