After a morning of working on one of my bots, I thought I’d ask what other people use
Professionally, I’m using the following bots in our community space:
- Maubot framework
- Anoa’s Remindbot
- TWIM-style Hebbot
- Hookshot (just webhook usage from various platforms, really should setup the GitHub stuff)
- Incoming notifications from Discourse
I worked on a really janky conference Q&A system using Hebbot to mark questions and a basic HTML widget to display the questions in the moderation room - but I had to retire that, it was so unstable.
We also have a few bridges to Discord and Slack (and until recently IRC) to link up the community, very useful
Privately I don’t have any bots running just now. I was running the Signal and WhatsApp bridges on my Dendrite homeserver, but I had a major system crash and had to roll back to a DB backup from March - and I have no idea what to do with the old bridge state now, so I haven’t re-enabled them.
What do you use? I want to get some ideas!
