i don't know when this will be ready because it's a fairly big undertaking, right now i've only got a few pages prepared and none of the backend stuff

i'm not looking forward to the SQL stuff but the rest should be fun :bun:

here's the bot edit page so far, it looks pretty gross i know

are there any options that seem missing? there are some other options not pictured here, such as turning off replies, banning given words, or changing the profile picture

i don't want to overwhelm the user with options but i don't want it to be too limiting either

this page allows you to manage your bots and such. the buttons on the bot are a little confusing because they're just icons. they mean, from left to right:

. toggle bot enabled/disabled
. bot settings
. accounts learned from
. banned words
. chat with your bot
. delete

before i shut down my free bot hosting service, i was hosting 108 bots. that means my server had 108 open connections listening for replies at all times. i don't know how many it can handle, but the answer's at least 108 :blobcatfingerguns:

i have no idea how many people are going to use this, though, so it might not go so well. each reply listener needs to be its own process, too... i might have to either get a separate server just for this or upgrade my current server to the prohibitively expensive next tier

in other words, when this goes live, i'm kinda hoping for people clicking on those donation links so i can upgrade the server! :blobbun_mlem:

this is by the people (henlo) for the people (you!) so if there's anything at all you'd like to see, let me know!

what do you want in an ebooks bot? what annoys or disappoints you about the current ones? if you could program, what custom functionality what you give your own one? what do you like or hate about webapps (like mastodon and gmail) that could apply here? what is your favourite breed of rabbit?

@lynnesbian i want the bot to tell me it loves me and I want to believe it is being sincere.

@lynnesbian I want the bot to feel existential despair. y’know, to take up some of the slack.
