  • 1. Twitterplug How to Tweet the energy usage of your home of office with the Current Cost meter
  • 2. What You Need
    • Current Cost Meter ( http://www.currentcost.com )
    • Mac or Linux PC*
    *NB. Mac and Linux have different instructions
  • 3. Linux
    • Before we start you will need to install James Smith's ( http://www.floppy.org.uk ) rb232 Ruby gem ( http://github.com/Floppy/rb232/tree/master )
    • Then put your Current Cost meter together
  • 4. Step Two
    • Plug everything in an attach the clamps around a cable
  • 5. Step Three
    • Download James' daemon from here:
    • http://github.com/Floppy/currentcost-daemon/tree/master
  • 6. Step Four
    • Run the program and watch your Tweets stream in
  • 7. Mac OS X
    • We couldn't get James' rb232 code to work, so we're going to go a different route...
    • First install PL2302 drivers for your mac
    • http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/drivers/pl2303usbtoserialdriver.html
  • 8. Step Two
    • Same as with Linux, plug everything in and attach the clamps
  • 9. Step Three - Oops, A Problem
    • Unfortunately, we couldn't get James' rb 232 code to work on OSX, but we found another way...
    • The plan is to:
      • Have the data sent off to Pachube (using a Pachube app)
      • Have a script that will pull the data off Pachube and then post this on Twitter
  • 10. Step Four
      • Sign up to Pachube ( http://www.pachube.com )
      • Create a Feed
  • 11. Step Five
    • Download this app http://community.pachube.com/?q=node/100
  • 12. And Finally
    • Download and run this code
    • http://gist.github.com/89139
