Backstory

Our group of friends. Aki-san is the lady on the right.

Initial ideas

Building the bot

Making good choices. Never ever hard code access tokens or IDs.

Aki bot v.1.1

Uses the API from https://newsapi.org/ and collects sources from the BBC
The final touch to Aki bot

Aki bot v.1.2 (sort of)

I’m actually making a lot of my friends uncomfortable at this point.

Aki bot v.2.0

Not even my friend Danny appreciated this. He gave me a 👎
I guess my sense of humour is really unique …

Enter J.A.R.V.I.S, if he was into roleplay.

Probably could’ve been done better. But I thought this way just looked neater. Change my mind.

Automation

Execute Jarvis every Monday, Wednesday & Saturday at 9:30pm
A bash script to first load my bash profiles then execute the python script for Jarvis to work.
That was a bad idea
