    Wake on Tweet

    Wake on Tweet

    tl:dr Just send a tweet with the hashtag #wakeonlan and a properly formatted mac address like AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF, an ip address or FQDN and a port number and that is it. Easy.

    It all started a few weeks ago when I was looking at Slack to use at a clients site so we could integrate more. If you haven’t tried Slack I would highly recommend taking a look – it’s WhatsApp for groups with a steroid injection of crazy fun stuff for developers. One of those fun things are hooks where you can define actions when things happen. So I have Slack hook alert to a group called #twitter whenever a tweet mentions @depicus it would call a webpage on a server. Sadly the info Slack passes wasn’t enough for me as it doesn’t include the message body of the tweet. So sadly my brave idea of Wake on Lan via Twitter died….
