• Python 3.6
  • Redis

for installing redis, on Linux,

apt-get install redis


yum install redis

for installing redis on macosx:

brew install redis

Create a virtualenv

We just create a virtualenv with python 3.6 (or 3.5)

python3.6 -m venv myproject
cd $_
source bin/activate

Install from GitHub

We install Trigger-Happy from Pypi

git clone https://github.com/foxmask/django-th.git
cd django-th
pip install -e .


python manage.py migrate
python manage.py createsuperuser

Load the initial services:

python manage.py loaddata initial_services

Start the application

python manage.py runserver &

Now open your browser and go to to start using the application by logged in

Activating the service

Go to activate the (at least) 2 services you plan to use:

“Activated services” (


1rst Service

  • Select Rss and validate

2nd Service

Create a trigger: in 5 steps

Once all of this is done, go back to the main page and create your first trigger

  • Step One:

Select Rss

  • Step 2:

enter the RSS URL that provide the data you want to grab

  • Step 3:

Select Wallabag

  • Step 4:

Set a tag (if you need)

  • Step 5:

Set a description that will be displayed in the list of your triggers

Turn the engine on:

Now that everything is setup, you can run the following commands:

python manage.py read
python manage.py publish

the first one, will read of the triggers that are enabled (with the blue “on/off” switch), and will download the data related to each of them, and will put them in the cache (available with Redis)

The second one, will read the data from the cache, and will publish them on Wallabag.

Once all of this is ok, you could automate this commands with Crontab later

Have Fun, and happy automation ;-)
