Screen shot 2013-06-18 at 21.50.34

This post follows on from installing Dashing.

Add Twitter search

URL=https://gist.github.com/jeroenbegyn/5419267

~/abbies_dashboard $ sudo gem install twitter

~/abbies_dashboard $ sudo dashing install 5419267

Opened Gemfile in ~/abbies_dashboard and added new line:

gem 'twitter'

~/abbies_dashboard $ sudo bundle install

Add Twitter configs to twitter-search.rb [to edit file, had to save edited version to a different folder then cut and paste into jobs folder]

Add weather widget

URL=https://gist.github.com/davefp/4990174

~/abbies_dashboard $ sudo gem install xml-simple

Opened Gemfile in ~/abbies_dashboard and added new line:

gem 'xml-simple'

~/abbies_dashboard $ sudo bundle install

~/abbies_dashboard $ sudo dashing install 4990174

You’ll also need the Climacons Webfont. Download it, and put the .eot, .ttf, and .woff files in your /assets/fonts folder

Added WOEID to weather.rb file
