Tagbot is a upvote bot, upvotes posts with a specific tag based on pre-defined parameters. It has a couple use cases, for example:

  • Voting for photography tag to support photographers
  • Voting for local tags (tr, deutsch, etc.) to support local content creators
  • Voting for the "utopian-io" tag to support developers



$ (sudo) pip install steem_tagbot

Do that in a python3.6 virtual environment and it will install all the requirements.


$ POSTING_KEY=private_posting_key tagbot /path/to/config.json

Configuration is stored in JSON files. You can find an example in the repository.
