We all love our friends that quote Shakespeare casually, but to read shakespeare is daunting for even the most advanced readers. What if you could consume shakespeare in a casual setting, and in small, bite-sized chunks?
What it does
Add Shakespeare-bot to your server and use the command:
to have shakespeare-bot tell you what that sonnet is.
How I built it
Utilized discord.py API and project-gutenberg's repository of Shakespeare.
Challenges I ran into
Converting Shakespeare's books into a proper lookup-table for sonnets.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Fully setup discord bot you can add to any server!
What I learned
- general api integration
- the power of repl.it! Very surprised how extensible it is
What's next for Shakespeare Bot
- adding more error checking and sassy-messages when incorrectly talking to Shakespeare-bot
- adding support for Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet
- applying NLP techniques to identify shakespeare-insults
