what features would you like to see in fedibooks?
things i'm definitely doing:
. customisable post frequency
. multiple bots
. bots learn from multiple accounts
. edit name, profile picture, etc. from fedibooks
things i'm probably doing:
. misskey support
things i'm not doing:
. patreon exclusive features
. different types of bots
the source code (what little there is so far, anyway ;3) is at https://github.com/Lynnesbian/FediBooks
here's the bot edit page so far, it looks pretty gross i know
are there any options that seem missing? there are some other options not pictured here, such as turning off replies, banning given words, or changing the profile picture
i don't want to overwhelm the user with options but i don't want it to be too limiting either
before i shut down my free bot hosting service, i was hosting 108 bots. that means my server had 108 open connections listening for replies at all times. i don't know how many it can handle, but the answer's at least 108
i have no idea how many people are going to use this, though, so it might not go so well. each reply listener needs to be its own process, too... i might have to either get a separate server just for this or upgrade my current server to the prohibitively expensive next tier
in other words, when this goes live, i'm kinda hoping for people clicking on those donation links so i can upgrade the server!
this is by the people (henlo) for the people (you!) so if there's anything at all you'd like to see, let me know!
what do you want in an ebooks bot? what annoys or disappoints you about the current ones? if you could program, what custom functionality what you give your own one? what do you like or hate about webapps (like mastodon and gmail) that could apply here? what is your favourite breed of rabbit?
@zoe hmm but then it's not exactly once per hour
and things like once per 55 minutes will get messy ;u;
@lynnesbian ye! but instead of "when it's created", maybe uniformly staggeActually I just realized that'd be eons of pain, ignore me
@josh that's a good point, but then i'd need my python webapp to generate systemd services, which sounds a little risky
