For me the hardest part of making a Mastodon bot was figuring out the OAuth dance to get my access token.
Twitter offers a UI that does this for you, so I made one for Mastodon! It works on any instance, but it does require you to run a `curl` command (that it generates for you) at the very end. Hope you find it useful!
@tinysubversions OH THIS IS GREAT! Thank you! I've had the same problems when I played around with my apps, hahah.
@tinysubversions Thank you!! This was the single biggest hurdle for my Raspberry Pi/Mastodon client project, too.
@tinysubversions Thanks for this! I tried updating @autoblake this past summer. I realized that William Blake repeats himself so much in his prophetic works and has so many run-on sentences that it was difficult for Markov-Tweet to properly end the strings at 140 characters. Maybe Mastodon's larger character set will create something interesting!
@tinysubversions eeee yesssss. this is gonna so come in handy when i convert roboapolofizer and autovalidaror into mastobots
@tinysubversions Ah thank you, that answered a big question for me. https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-the-API/API.md#apps for future reference.
