DeltaBot

DeltaBot is a score keeping reddit bot originally designed for /r/changemyview. If you are thinking about using this code for your own subreddit, or any other purpose, we advise that you use a token that makes sense to you. The delta is an appropriate symbol that was chosen for /r/changemyview because it is often used to represent change.

This bot works by reading a subreddit and looking for specific tokens that denote that a point should be awarded. If it finds one, it acts accordingly by carrying out various jobs that can be found at http://www.reddit.com/r/changemyview/wiki/deltabot.

Usage

  1. Make sure you have Python and PRAW installed.
  2. Create the file config.json and fill in the appropriate fields using config.json.example as a template.
  3. Linux/Mac users: Run runbot.sh. Windows users: Run winrun.bat. CLI: Type python deltabot from the root folder of the program.

Make sure whatever account you're using to run the bot is a moderator of your subreddit and has permission to edit flair and the wiki.
