Add imgflip meme generation to your Lita bot!
Add lita-imgflip-memes to your Lita instance's Gemfile:
The 'lita way' to do this is to open up your
lita_config.rb and set up file-based configuration:
config.handlers.imgflip_memes.api_user = 'myusername' config.handlers.imgflip_memes.api_password = 'mypassword'
I have set up this gem to deafult to the following environment variables if the config entries aren't set in
Adding new memes to your local Lita bot
On a suggestion from @joshwlewis I've added a way to put new memes in your Lita bot without having to monkey patch this gem. Add them to your
lita_config.rb with the
Lita::Handlers::ImgflipMemes.add_meme( template_id: 61546, pattern: /(brace yoursel[^\s]+) (.*)/i, help: 'brace yourselves, <text>')
Note that the
pattern needs to be a regex and it needs to capture two strings. If you don't have two pairs of parens in your regex you're gonna have a bad time.
