New Post & ModQueue alert
This script will monitor a list of subreddits for new posts and items in the modqueue. It can then send a message to a slack or discord channel and a private message to a list of users on reddit.
You just need praw, so run:
pip install -r requirements.txt
To install the dependencies. You then need to configure copy the
config.json.template file to
config.json and update it with the api keys and settings you want.
Create your bot / mod account and go to: https://www.reddit.com/prefs/apps/. Create an app and it will give you the credentials you need.
Create a slack app and get a webhook for the channel you would like to post to: https://api.slack.com/incoming-webhooks#getting-started.
In your server settings create a webhook: https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/228383668-Intro-to-Webhooks
Just fill in the usernames you want to be notified in the array. i.e
"users": [ "Isa", "Owen" ],
Then just set enabled to true on the notifications you want. You can also disable modqueue or post checking by setting mosqueue or new_posts to false. If you want to listen for only certain keywords you can add a list and enable that too.
This is still a WIP and an ever evolving project:
- Write some tests for it
- Try and cover more error cases
- Modmail notifications
- Make into a PyPI module and or systemd service
