Ideas & Implementation

Cyberpunk quote bot


I needed an idea for a home programming project and I found it. I decided to create a bot that would post a picture from DeviantArt and a quote from a cyberpunk book in a chat. While looking for interesting images on DeviantArt, I came across the Openverse website where you can find CC-licensed images. I decided to use this site and find interesting pictures by tag "cyberpunk". For quotes, I searched Goodreads and found 370 hand-picked cyberpunk quotes. The bot can now load images from Openverse with the "/load" command and post a quote from Goodreads with the "/quote" command. Both elements are selected from a pre-created database in random order, so after a while repetitions will be inevitable.
