We wanted a way to brag about our internet points to friends, so we made one.
What it does
takes in commands, returns scores.
How we built it
We started by figuring out how to access that twitter and reddit APIs to pull data from that, then we tried getting the scripts to run on a ruby on rails server so we could display it to a website, but that didn't work so we just sent the data to a discord bot that we wrote.
Challenges we ran into
ruby on rails doesn't like python, API accessing is hard, git was rude.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Figuring out how to use OAUTH to verify a request, and figuring out how to write a discord bot.
What we learned
API usage, Discord bot usage, Python, ruby things, bootstrap
What's next for Internet_Score_Bot
We would like to implement Facebook, Instagram, Imgur and many other internet point platforms.
