Project Description

The monobot package for Python is a tool for Reddit API development that creates sample comments to use with testing other Reddit bots.


pip install monobot will install the package and console tool.

Alternatively, after cloning the repository, use the following command:

python install


After installation, the bot can be started with the `monobot` console command. A sample configuration file can be found in the repository, this README, and it will be displayed if the bot is run without a config file specified.
