@comradetaylorswift OCRbot does support other languages (by invoking it like @ OCRbot japanese), but unfortunately support for fictional ones isn't here yet
After what feels like forever, OCRbot has received a minor update. The code has been cleaned up, and I've written a guide explaining the various potential error messages: https://github.com/Lynnesbian/OCRbot/blob/master/README.md#Errors
So if you've ever received an error message from OCRbot without knowing why, this should help.
Cleaning up the code makes it easier to introduce changes later, and makes me feel more comfortable about OCRbot's stability.
If you encounter any issues, let me know, either by tagging this profile, my main account, or sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
@pie It should update every two hours. I'll fix that wrapping thing now
@Deiru Like this?
@pie I feel like that's outside the scope of FediBooks. It does sound like an interesting idea, but it wouldn't really match the idea of the project. Sorry
Pleroma support is fixed, and it's now possible to create bots on Pleroma instances.
As Pleroma does not currently support fine-grained app permissions, FediBooks will require full read and write access to your account. You may look through the source code to verify that these permissions are not used maliciously.
for those who've been following along with this thread, i'm sure you've seen that it's been quite a ride!
once the mstdn-ebooks import functionality is done, i'll be shutting down my paid hosting service after a week. this means i'm cutting off the income source i mainly use to pay for the server.
there are currently no donor benefits, although patreon pledgers (to any tier) will get early access to my lynne teaches tech posts.
thanks for considering!
As you will have seen if you've been following my maini account, FediBooks is now live.
You can now sign up for a free account and create your own ebooks bot(s) at https://fedibooks.com
This is not the same as the old FediBooks project, it just uses the same name.
Okay, I've fixed mstdn-ebooks' compatibility with Pleroma.
If you're getting me to host your ebooks bot(s), there's nothing you need to do.
If you're hosting your own (or someone else is hosting yours for you), you only need to do anything if any of the users your bot learns from use Pleroma. In that case, you need to delete `toots.db` and restart the reply service.
Thanks for understanding.
