RePAWster

RePAWster is a Reddit bot utilizing PRAW that reposts top rated pictures of dogs from various active dog subreddits to /r/top_dogs. Subreddits utilized are:

'Top-rated' pictures are manually defined for each subreddit. To find the karma cutoffs I guesstimated for each feeder subreddit such that approximately 1/4 of the best submissions should be cross-posted each run of the bot. PRAW/Reddit have a system for checking duplicate links, so if a link has been submitted to /r/top_dogs recently it will be auto filtered without completing.

The bot runs a on an Ubuntu virtual server with Digital Ocean. The script runs periodically every day using Cron.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
