 +===== Bots =====
 +==== RSS ====
 +So far I've just setup a bot that posts once a day if a Youtube channel is updated. Wasn't too hard!
 +
 +You can check it out at https://​gamemaking.social/​@classicsofgame
 +
 +I used [[https://​gitlab.com/​chaica/​feed2toot|Feed2toot]],​ which uses Python, and takes care of registering itself (bots/apps need to register to get an ID and stuff). Here'​re the steps I took.
 +
 +  - Make the bot account. Do this like you'd make any other account. Make sure you edit the account'​s profile so it gets labelled as a bot. Typically people will also say who owns the bot, how often it posts, and where they got their script from.
 +  - Grab Feed2toot from gitlab and set it up following the instructions in the readme.
 +  - FIXME
 +
 +Mine's hosted on my namecheap shared server. To set it up there you
 +
 +  - grab the repro from gitlab and set it up,
 +  - then go into cpanel and register a python app. This creates a //virtual environment//​ and instructions on how to get into it, which you need to install modules with pip, as well as use a current version of Python.
 +  - You can also setup a cron job in cpanel. Dunno if this's right, but it works, mine uses three commands separated by ''&&''​ to switch into the virtual environment,​ change to the directory I want, then run the script pointing to the location of my .INI file.
