Sometimes I feel down and when I browse Reddit and see cute dogs and cats, I feel better so I wanted to share it with others on twitter.
What it does
It uses Reddit API with help from praw library to grab the hottest submissions from r/aww. Then, using twitter API it uploads it and tweets it with this account (https://twitter.com/itll_be_ok_bot) on a daily schedule. Also every hour it follows followers and replies to their tweet if it senses sadness in it by recognizing a :( face
How I built it
researching the web and with sweat and tears
Challenges I ran into
I struggled with setting up the APIs as I had no experience Also, Twitter limits the number requests the API can do in an hour which was discouraging.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I happy it works, it could be better, but it works and that I'm satisfied I actually made something.
What I learned
APIs can be very useful and have a lot of possibilities.
