Black To The Future Bot

This bot tweets every expense make with spanish tarjetas black with a delay of 10 years.

The tweet bot, Tweet10YearsAgo.py, is written in python. There is also a bash script, data.split.sh, that splits the huge data file in smaller files with monthly expenses.

You can find a file with all the expenses from 2003 to 2012 in data/data.csv.

Configure the Twitter bot

Write your Twitter keys and tokens in TweetConfig.sample.py file and save it as TweetConfig.py.

Python script dependences

The bot uses some python modules that need to be installed:

pip install python-twitter schedule python-dateutil

Daemonize the python script

To run the bot on system start and restart it automatically if it crashes, this repo includes a unit file to config a systemd daemon: blactodefuture.sample.daemon.

You must edit this file and set up the correct user and paths and save it as blactodefuture.daemon. Make sure that Tweet10YearsAgo.py has execution rights for that user.

Then copy the file to /etc/systemd/system, enable the daemon and start it:

sudo systemctl enable blacktodefuture.service
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl start blacktodefuture.service
