After our old computer runinng give away candy had a hard drive crash, we needed a new and what better than have a a small, energy efficient and hip computer like Raspberry Pi.
The part of www.giveawaycandy.com that runes on the Raspberry Pi is the part listen to twitter and check if the twitters meet the requirements for releasing a candy i.e. containing “@_macke_” or “@sidpiraya” and “candy”. The Raspberry is also responsible to stream the video feed of the candy machine to Bambuser. We are using Adafruit’s Occidentalis distro.
