Word-of-the-day robot for tweeting a word of the day.
First you need a list of Wiktionary words. There's a Finnish one in the data directory. It was made like this
Download enwiktionary-20140118-pages-articles-multistream.xml.bz2 (484.5M) or newer from the Wiktionary data dumps and unzip. Then run:
python wotdbot_extract_words.py > data/finnish.txt
For other languages, change "Finnish" in the
if and "fi" in the regex.
Then run like from a scheduled task/crontab:
python wotdbot.py --wordlist data/finnish.txt --yaml data/wotdbot.yaml --no-web
