Connection strings

Config format

The configuration file contains a list of network connection strings, ie.

    "networks": {
        "enabled": [
            // etc.
        "disabled": []

Each entry in the $.networks.enabled list is a connection string describing how to connect to a single social network account.

Many connection strings require an authorisation token from the social network they connect to. See:

Social network connection strings

Each social network has its own connection string parameters:

Console connection strings


Console is the simplest of the ‘social networks’ - instead of connecting to a network, it simply prints any messages it has been asked to post to the console or log.

Console is the only “network” that does not require you to specify a shortcode. You shouldn’t need to create more than one instance of console.
