After setting up Huginn, and implementing the actions on my todo list, I had a look at the available agents and started thinking what else they can be useful for.
One of the ideas I came up with is monitoring if a website is available, or has some trouble. I already have a monitoring system in place, but it’s a nice exercise to learn more about the other agents.
A while ago I started using Huginn, as a replacement for IFTTT. That’s going quite well. Huginn offers more features, integrations, and especially your chains (scenarios) can be as complex as you wish. IFTTT is quite limited in this area.
I use the Twitter integration to find certain Tweets. Now this does not only find native Tweets, but also finds every Retweet made for a native Tweet. Obviously I am not interested in duplicate content.
Huginn offers a way to filter out Retweets.
