Intel checkpoint and cycle calculator for Niantic Lab's Ingress(tm)

Project description

This is a simple module for managing checkpoint and cycle information for Niantic Labs’ Ingress game.

It includes a command-line front end and a flask based daemon for responding to Slack slash commands.

Niantic Labs is not responsible for this program, and neither endorses nor supports it.


pip install inteltime

After installing, you will end up with a set of applications (mostly used for testing) and the eyeop module:

  • inteltime - command line utility for testing
  • inteltime-flask - stantalone (for debugging only) flask daemon for Slack


Use the source, or try the inteltime command.

Apache with mod_wsgi for Slack

Configure Apache with HTTPS and valid (not self-signed) SSL certificates. Slack requires that your certificates are not self-signed.

Configure Apache to serve WSGI files out of of a particular directory, in this example, we’re using /srv/prod/wsgi

WSGIScriptAlias /inteltime /srv/prod/wsgi/inteltime.wsgi
<Directory "/srv/prod/wsgi">
    Require all granted
    SSLOptions +StdEnvVars
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

Install mod_wsgi and copy the .wsgi file in this module to the directory where you decided to serve .wsgi files (as above).

sudo pip install mod_wsgi
sudo a2enmod mod_wsgi
cp inteltime/examples/inteltime.wsgi /srv/prod/wsgi/inteltime.wsgi

Restart apache with the new configuration and modules.

systemctl apache2 restart


Create a two slack custom integration slash commands. (See

command: /checkpoint
url: https://address.of.your.server/inteltime/checkpoint
method: POST

command: /cycle
url: https://address.of.your.server/inteltime/cycle
method: POST

When someone uses the /checkpoint slash-command, a HTTPS post will be issued to the URL you specified, which, in turn, will cause Apache to execute the shim script, which will, in turn, execute the wsgi module.
