ExistentialRickBot

Autobuilding Docker image and updated for PRAW4.3

/u/ExistentialRickBot is a Reddit Bot who finds meaning in life by listening to submissions on /r/rickandmorty subreddit and answering any questions as best it can.

Meaning

The phrase "Don't think about it" is said by Rick in the Pilot episode of Rick & Morty.

Logic

The core logic is found in existential_rock_bot.py:

def isExistentialQuestion(message):
  return '?' in message and any(
    [q in message.lower() for q in ['why', 'happen', 'think', 'season 3', 'season three']])

def getAnswerToExistentialQuestion():
  return "The answer is don't think about it."

ExistentialRickBot leaves a comment on such submissions, the response looks a bit like this:

The answer is don't think about it.

Developers

To set up praw credentials modify example_praw.ini with the correct credentials and rename the file to praw.ini.

One way to run this is to use docker run elucidation/existential_rick_bot.
