OK, Oulipals, I'm publishing a first cut of my AWS Lambda bot library on NPM/Github. It works on Mastodon! Try it if you build bots, and holla atcha boy with your opinions!
@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!
