FPLbot

FPLbot is a bot made for the subreddit /r/FantasyPL. It can also be used for other subreddits by changing the values in the configuration file.

Its current features are:

  • Posting the price changes of Fantasy Premier League players

Installation

FPLbot uses MongoDB to store players in a database, and so it is required to have MongoDB installed. Other than that, it uses fpl to retrieve information from Fantasy Premier League's API, and thus requires Python 3.6+.

git clone git@github.com:amosbastian/FPLbot.git
cd FPLbot
pip install -r requirements.txt

To initialise the database you should do the following:

python FPLbot/utils.py

Once this has been done, you can schedule a cron job to run the bot whenever you want!

Configuration

USERNAME The bot's username
PASSWORD The bot's password
CLIENT_ID The bot's client ID
CLIENT_SECRET The bot's client secret
USER_AGENT A unique identifier that helps Reddit determine the source of network requests
SUBREDDIT The subreddit the bot will post to
