An automatic follow request rejector for Mastodon

Project description

autoreject

a tool to automatically reject follow requests for mastodon accounts

criteria:

  • account age
  • whether a bio has been set
  • whether an account is a bot
  • no profile picture set
  • min/max followers count
  • min/max follow count
  • min/max post count

important to note: this tool will never accept a follow request. only reject based on these criteria.

current working level

you can define criteria and reject via the API

installing

python3 -m pip install mastodon-autoreject

here's the pypi page

defining criteria

when providing criteria to the functions that accept it, you provide a dict with the criteria to reject on.

If you don't want to reject based on a certain criteria, simply exclude it from the dict.

key value type description
min_follows integer reject accounts who have fewer than this number of follows
min_followers integer reject accounts who have fewer than this number of followers
max_follows integer reject accounts who have more than this number of follows
max_followers integer reject accounts who have more than this number of followers
has_bio boolean if True, reject accounts if they do not have a bio defined. If False, reject accounts that do have a bio defined.
has_avatar boolean if True, reject accounts if they have a default avatar. If False, reject accounts that have a custom avatar set.
min_posts integer reject accounts with fewer than this number of statuses/posts/toots/whatever
max_posts integer reject accounts with more than this number of statuses/posts/toots/whatever
min_age datetime.timedelta reject accounts that are younger than the given timedelta duration
no_bots boolean if True, rejects accounts if they have the bot flag set. If False, reject accounts that are not bots.

here's an example

criteria = {
    "min_follows": 10,
    "min_followers": 10,
    "max_follows": 100,
    "max_followers": 100,
    "has_bio": True,
    "has_avatar": True,
    "min_posts": 10,
    "max_posts": 100,
    "min_age": timedelta(days=7),
    "no_bots": True
}

# masto is a logged in instance of Mastodon.py, see here: https://mastodonpy.readthedocs.io/en/stable/#module-mastodon
masto = ... 

autoreject.reject_follows(masto, criteria) # will return a list of accounts that were rejected along with the reasons why
