Creative bots

Tweetin'

This is a template for making creative online bots with Glitch. It requires a paid Glitch account.

A quick tutorial

  1. Create accounts for all of your bots. Currently supported networks:
  1. Update the .env file with your Twitter API keys/secrets.
  2. All bots are automatically loaded from the bots folder. Update an existing bot, or add your own.

Each bot file needs to export an object with the following information:

{
  active: true,
  name: 'A basic bot',
  description: 'Just a very basic bot!',
  interval: cronSchedules.EVERY_THREE_HOURS,
  script: function(){
    /* This is your bot's main code. */
  }
}

You can change active to false to prevent a bot from being scheduled. For interval you can either use one of the values inside helpers/cron-schedules.js, or you can use a custom cron schedule -- see the cron package documentation for more details.

Check out stefans-creative-bots project for an example remix of this project.

Make sure your bot follows rules of the networks it's posting on and is overall not a jerk. Visit Botwiki for tutorials and open source bots and remember to join Botmakers and submit your bot to Botwiki :-)
