what features would you like to see in fedibooks?
things i'm definitely doing:
. customisable post frequency
. multiple bots
. bots learn from multiple accounts
. edit name, profile picture, etc. from fedibooks
things i'm probably doing:
. misskey support
things i'm not doing:
. patreon exclusive features
. different types of bots
the source code (what little there is so far, anyway ;3) is at https://github.com/Lynnesbian/FediBooks
here's the bot edit page so far, it looks pretty gross i know
are there any options that seem missing? there are some other options not pictured here, such as turning off replies, banning given words, or changing the profile picture
i don't want to overwhelm the user with options but i don't want it to be too limiting either
before i shut down my free bot hosting service, i was hosting 108 bots. that means my server had 108 open connections listening for replies at all times. i don't know how many it can handle, but the answer's at least 108
i have no idea how many people are going to use this, though, so it might not go so well. each reply listener needs to be its own process, too... i might have to either get a separate server just for this or upgrade my current server to the prohibitively expensive next tier
in other words, when this goes live, i'm kinda hoping for people clicking on those donation links so i can upgrade the server!
this is by the people (henlo) for the people (you!) so if there's anything at all you'd like to see, let me know!
what do you want in an ebooks bot? what annoys or disappoints you about the current ones? if you could program, what custom functionality what you give your own one? what do you like or hate about webapps (like mastodon and gmail) that could apply here? what is your favourite breed of rabbit?
- I want randomly generated posts using a specific source.
- Occasionally they can be a bit too nonsensical here and there, and adjusting their frequency can be a bit weh. Also wish I could customize 'em more easily
- Honestly dunno. Some ideas I have are a poll to adjust posting rates, or using the time delay between posts to think of a better AI-related solution other than Markov Chains
- honestly the UI, that's basically it tbh
the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retired
