Star Wars DOT Gif
Copy the contents of
config.cfg and make sure to change the paths for VLC and the Star Wars episodes. Any format that can be read by VLC should be acceptable for the movies. Note, if you don't plan on running the twitter bot you only need to fill out the general section of the cfg file.
To Run with search UI (sample run):
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
The gif is always created as star_wars.gif
$ python star_wars_gif.py
To get a random gif:
$ python makeGifs.py
If you want to use
makeGifs elsewhere use:
from makeGifs import makeGif # source should be 4, 5, or 6 # index is the index of the SRT makeGif(source, index)
Running the twitter bot:
- make sure you create API accounts for both twitter and imgur
- update config.cfg* to have the keys for both
$ python twitter_bot.py
The bot will tweet once every 15 minutes.
Note: If generating gifs is taking too long for you remove
nq=10 from the
writeGif call at the sacrifice of quality.
