dAbot

CLI tool to automate stuff on DeviantArt.com

Installation

  1. Install Python 3 (Python 2 will work too but it's not recommended)
  2. Open Terminal/Command Prompt and enter pip install dAbot
    If that doesn't work, try python -m pip install dAbot
    If that doesn't work either, you're likely using Windows and you should reinstall Python making sure that the "Add in PATH" option is checked.
  3. Once dAbot is installed, you can use any of the commands listed below by entering them in Terminal/Command Prompt.

To upgrade it later, run pip install dAbot --upgrade

Usage

dAbot <cookies_txt_path> [-v] llama      give          random        (deviants|groups|exchangers)

dAbot <cookies_txt_path> [-v] exec       <code>
dAbot <cookies_txt_path> [-v] llama      stats         <deviant>
dAbot <cookies_txt_path> [-v] llama      hof           group         <group_name> [--reversed]

dAbot <cookies_txt_path> [-v] badges     hof           <deviant_names>...
dAbot <cookies_txt_path> [-v] save       random        (deviants|groups|exchangers)               <quantity>
dAbot <cookies_txt_path> [-v] save       group_members <group>
dAbot <cookies_txt_path> [-v] save       dev_ids       <dev_names_file_path>                      [--if_llama_given]
  1. Install a browser extension that can export a cookies.txt file. Here's one for Chrome.
  2. Go to DeviantArt.com and export the cookies.txt file for that tab only (or for DeviantArt.com only).
  3. For <cookies_txt_path>, supply the path where the cookies.txt was exported/saved.
    This should look something like C:\Users\you\Downloads\cookies.txt or /Users/you/Downloads/cookies.txt
  4. After exporting cookies from your browser, you can clear your browser cookies for DeviantArt.com (or all cookies) so that your cookies aren't shared between the browser and the bot (which might create issues). You'll then have to login on your browser again and this will give your browser a fresh set of cookies.

If some command doesn't work, disable Eclipse and try again.

Example

This will give me a llama:

dAbot /Users/you/Downloads/cookies.txt llama give Kishan-Bagaria

Disclaimer

I don't intend to maintain this tool (except for some occasional changes). I developed this as a personal project back in 2014 and three years later, it wasn't doing much good sitting around, so I put it out here.
It can be refactored a lot and sped up 100x using asynchronous connections. If you're a developer interested in hacking the code, you should definitely look into that.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
