This is a super brilliant tool for helping run and test ScraperWiki tools.


npm install -g swot

Or, if you are using npm (and node.js) to develop your tool, then add swot as a devDependency and it will appear in your node_modules/.bin directory.

Using it

For each tool you are testing you need to cd into the directory containing the git repo for your tool and then run:

swot setup <boxName> <apikey>

(this saves some stuff in .swotconfig)

Then you can get swot to watch your tool directory for changes and it will sync them with the remote box:

swot watch


If you are developing swot itself, we recommend that you install it with

npm link

so that the development version will be on your PATH.
