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.
- Python 3.4
Create a file called
config.py that looks like
config_example.py. Fill in the necessary values.
For Twitter config:
- Register your app
- Get your app's key and secret.
- Create token and get the token and secret.
- Get a Giphy API key.
Then, to run the bot:
$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt $ python3 bot.py
