follow these steps for a quick start!**

Installation
============

The easiest way to install is::

pip install yatcobot

See more at `Installation <https://yatcobot.readthedocs.io/en/master/installation.html/>`_


Configuration
=============
Before starting you must get api keys from twitter. You can get these keys from `here <https://apps.twitter.com/>`_.
(See more at `How to get twitter api keys <https://yatcobot.readthedocs.io/en/master/api_keys.html/>`_)

You must create a config named `config.yaml` and must at least set the api keys. A minimal config.yaml is

.. code-block:: yaml

twitter:
consumer_key: your_consumer_key
consumer_secret: your_consumer_secret
access_token_key: your_access_token
access_token_secret: your_access_token_secret


You can edit config.sample.yaml that is placed in the root of the project (`dont forget to rename it to config.yaml`) or view the sample `on github <https://github.com/buluba89/Yatcobot/blob/master/config.sample.yaml>`_


Config file is loaded automatically from specific paths. The paths that are searched for config.yaml are (from highest priority to lowest):

1. *./config.yaml*
Search for config in the current working directory
2. *~/.config/Yatcobot/config.yaml*
Search in config folder. If for example your username is `user` the full path will be `/home/user/.config/Yatcobot/config.yaml`
3. *default*
The default config that is packaged with the bot.

Also you can define another config with the **--config** argument, which will have the highest priority

Higher priority configs override settings that are defined in the lower. So in your config you only need to define the changes.
(See more at `Configuration documentation <https://yatcobot.readthedocs.io/en/master/config.html/>`_)



Run
===
In the directory where your config.yaml run::

yatcobot

Or you can specify the path of config with:

yatcobot --config=/path/to/config.yaml

See more at `Command Line Arguments <https://yatcobot.readthedocs.io/en/master/cli.html/>`_


Now just wait for all the **free gifts!**
