Project description


Twitter bot to tweet uplifting images at twitter users


Simply tweet a mention at UpBeatBot (@UpBeatBot) on Twitter to receive a cute picture tweeted at you

Running UpBeatBot

To run UpBeatBot on your own, download the source code and create a .env file that contains your twitter bot's authentication keys. You can copy the .example_env file to .env and replace with your relevant keys

Next, create a Python virtual environment running python3. Assuming you have the virtualenv package installed, you can run the following command in this directory to get it set up:

virtualenv -p $(which python3) venv

Activate the virtual environment by entering source venv/bin/activate from the project directory

Finally, install the requirements by entering pip install -r requirements.txt from the project root. This will install the needed dependencies in the virtual environment for use by the program

Runing ./ will start the TwitterBot, it will log information about program execution to a log file (dev.log) in the directory UpBeatBot is stored in

To run the unit tests for this project, enter python -m unittest discover -v from the project root. You'll see the output of every test method, and if any fail an explanation as to why they failed.
