tt-history v3: Trend summaries


(Edit: This update will take longer than I expected because it is a side project and I can only work on it a couple of hours in every few months, please be patient.)

I’m working on tt-history’s third version. It will be the biggest update that ever rolled out. 

1Storege of data: I’m not going to save all trending topics in (10) minutes resolution. This increases my storage costs very much. Therefore, I’m going to store only daily summary of the trends in datastore (in order to search trends by name) and a .csv file (in order to reduce datastore call especially going bak to specific dates).

2Regions: New regions will be added. First step will reduce my costs and even I will have free quota. Therefore, I will use it for storing other regions data. However, It is a side effect on the Twitter API because it will increase API requests. Therefore, I will fetch trending topics in 15 minutes (currently it is 10 minutes).

3Search: Searching a trend name (or hashtag) will be added to the system. It is one of the most requested features.
