I built a PoC "found lipograms" bot on birdspot with instant-bot: https://twitter.com/lipogram_bot
It's kind of boring, and constantly RTs Kardashians (also not that strict about glyphs in @s, &c.). But it works!
@cm what if kardashians did join oulipo.social
@cm Mis-parsing PoC on first glancing.
@cm oh i wish i had this on friday so I didn't go to such a big task as to start from scratch with drilipobot
@mlc 😅 It's good to know Lambda anyways!
@cm if a bot tracks its instant of last run (as your api docs say), can my bot algorithm know that instant, too? & how tracks it that instant, if a lambda function is without, uh, a nation?
@mlc @bnwlfsn Ah, I should fix my docs on this. It always *runs* at 1min/tick (cf. https://github.com/ecmendenhall/instant-bot/blob/master/examples/lipogram-bot/serverless.yml#L16). This param (https://github.com/ecmendenhall/instant-bot/blob/master/lib/config.js#L7) is just for posts—if it's "5 mins," it won't post a toot until its last post is 5 mins old (by looking at its last post's chrono-stamp). It's too confusing, I think!
@cm ah, okay!
