I came across this article on MAKE: Party Scroller
Very cool idea, but since I don’t have an actual LED scroller I decided to make a web version: https://github.com/Druwerd/party-scroller
The functionality is basically the same. You send your text message to a Google voice number and your message is displayed on a web page.
However, I used different technology for my implementation:
- Sinatra for the web server.
- Sqlite + Datamapper for the database.
- gmail rubygem to connect to Gmail.
- And of course Ruby =)
