slashgif

The missing GIF Twitter bot. Simply tag @slashgif in your tweet with a search term.

Where is this bot running?

Currently I'm running this bot on a 1GB DigitalOcean instance (yes, that's an affiliate link. Use that to get a free VPS for 2 months). The bot is not resource-intensive and uses a couple dozen MBs of RAM.

Running

Requirements

  • Python 3.4
  • pip3
  • sqlite3

Instructions

Create a file called config.py that looks like config_example.py. Fill in the necessary values.

For Twitter config:

  1. Register your app
  2. Get your app's key and secret.
  3. Create token and get the token and secret.
  4. Get a Giphy API key.

Then, to run the bot:

$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
$ python3 bot.py
