SpursGifs_xposterbot

Reddit bot I started writing while sitting bored in a hotel room for x-posting gifs/vines/gyfcats from /r/coys to /r/SpursGifs.

Basic flow

  • Runs on Heroku, using the free scheduler. Checking once/hour for now.
  • Xposts to /r/SpursGifs (converts to gfycat first if it's a gif or vine)
  • Comments on the new post giving credit to the OP
  • Comments on the original post linking the x-posted submission

TODO

  • Use a DB on heroku for caching there (local pickle file doesn't persist between runs) Done!
  • Convert gifs to gfycat Done!
  • Cache previously gfycat'd urls. Done!
  • Use gfycat's API for checking to see if a gif was already converted. Minor, and I think their API already does this server-side Not necessary, they handle this already internally.
  • Convert Vine videos to gfycat (for consistency/convenience) Done!
