2018-06-14 Wrote a Bot

I wrote a Mastodon bot: @textmapper. It posts a Text Mapper map once a day.

It was surprisingly easy to do! I’m still confused by how easy it was. I was expecting some bugs. It... just worked!? I had great libraries to work with: Mastodon.py, CairoSVG, and all the other things I used.

I’m also using the Software Wiki to keep track of ideas.
