Mastodon ebooks bot
Branch: master
Clone or download


Lynnear Edition

This version makes quite a few changes from the original, such as:

  • Unicode support
  • Non-Markov stuff
  • Stores toots in a sqlite database rather than a text file
    • Doesn't unecessarily redownload all toots every time

Install/usage guide

An installation and usage guide is available here. It's primarily targeted at Linux, but it should be possible on BSD, macOS, etc. I've also put some effort into providing steps for Windows, but I can't make any guarantees as to its effectiveness.

Original README
