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
