[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] are you comfortable using command line?
[kisean] not really.. i have done it quite anumber of times but only following instructions
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] might be easier to install it by running this command below
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
[kisean] remember i am installing it on a webhost space not local server

[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Quick question: do we have a scheduler managing out incoming data from SMS/Email/Twiitter etc?
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] yup, we do
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] i can't find it on the UI :D **runs and hides**
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] unless we have it running in the background
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Good question actually...
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] but haven't set if for users to manage frequency on their own yet
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] they need to be set up separately -- most likely as cron jobs
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Sawa - **runs to github to create an issue**
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] cool.

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @AngelaOduor I did.. but I replaced it with a milestone ;)
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] re: scheduler. Cron jobs separately is intentional. V2 tried to reimplement stuff cron does by itself. It also ran scheduler in a background request and routinely made sites crawl to a halt.
I'm not building that again :)
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] however I absolutely should document the cron jobs properly

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @will https://github.com/ushahidi/platform-pattern-library/issues/16#event-462055059 solution to our earlier discussion about who change button works

[Link]

<p>ushahidi/platform-pattern-library#16</p>

<p>We now have a 'change this' button in the post summary and on post detail Its not clear what the action should be on these? Do we direct to edit post? show a modal? a dropdown?</p>

[Will, Ushahidi] ok great, once the code works again I'll add that

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I am apparently stuck in dependency hell..
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] f**king angular
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Tried to make a helper service into a provider so I could do config during app startup
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] However now its a provider it can't depend on other services.. so no $filter
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] or anything else useful
