Super Challenge Bot

Postby davidchoward » Sat May 16, 2020 2:39 am

Hello everyone, as I've started looking at the Super Challenge Bot I thought I would start a thread discussing the progress and potential upgrades we can make.

Current Status

I have access to the source code and I am working on creating some tests to get more familiar with how the code works and make it a bit easier to update with new features. I suspect that this will take me a few weeks (let's say a month, to be generous). Afterwards I think I would like to take a look at possible improvements that can be made.

As far as I know, the Super Challenge Bot isn't deployed yet for 2020 has not been deployed yet - I'm going to look into how this can done as well.

I think I'll update this post with progress as it goes!

PROGRESS

TODO:

    - [x] Refactor code to support testing
    - [ ] Testing tag parsing
    - [ ] Testing database code
    - [ ] Testing twitter code
    - [ ] Deploy
    - [ ] Sort users by score

Thank you!
Originally the bot sorted everyone by their totals but this was changed in 2014. The plan was always to bring this back as an optional feature, but this never happened :?

Great, I will add this to a list of to-dos.

A small update: I'm working on the tag parsing code right now.

The bot has been deployed, but I cannot get CLI access to the server to modify the connection file. :(

If you do any updates which don't change the DB substantially I can update the code.
