Once @tippy is Finished I'll Be Releasing a Simplified Open Sourced Tip Bot for Upcoming Communities!

in news •  2 years ago  (edited)

( A screencap from the top secret cool kids Steemit slack with @clayop inspiring me )

It's no secret that I'm a nerdy code mercenary who creates unique and complex services for our STEEM network. When @steemitqa approached me with the idea to develop a text to tip service I loved the idea and immediately began planning it. While initially python 3.5 and the python-steem was initially used recently it was ported over to NodeJS utilizing steem.js as the workhorse behind it. Javascript is far more fluent for me than Python and the switch over to NodeJS has made the build far less difficult!

No dealing with account keys or having to go into your wallet to send STEEM or SBD once the @tippy service launches in the next few weeks. It'll be as simple as send your STEEM / SBD to the @tippy account and it will be automatically added to your @tippy account balance. With a positive balance you will be able to send tips via the "@tippy tip user 0.001 STEEM" or "@tippy tip user 0.001 SBD" commands quickly without ever having to leave the post!

Currently working on this project, having got the following systems implemented:

  • Deposits
  • Tips
  • Balances
  • Statistics
  • Information

Will create a post when we get closer to launch with a better explaination of how to use it.

Please don't deposit yet! Any deposits will likely be lost and will be considered donations!

Great to see you found a ways to integrate these ideas as well. Opensourcing it, is great for it to grow and become flexible on its own, each community can use their own copy/version with different languages, settings etc... Keep up the good work!

Thanks man! The idea was originally for a changetip like clone but your post does have a pretty similar design vibe for sure. :D

For sure, we all through some bits out there and all that matters is actual work and something that you can touch and see it in action... By looks of it, you are really close. Keep it up, brother! ;)

btw, Have you seen this post ? Opensourcing solution is best way to avoid this kind of situations..

GK, your work is always so great man, I have not told you in awhile!

Thanks Barry! Appreciate that, you doing great yourself, nonstop, active, I see you bringing awareness everywhere I look, YouTube, forums, chats... How do you manage all that, I am amazed 😊

I am very honoured by your comments to me on this!


To be noticed by such a busy and successful account as yours while I just minnow along is really something encouraging for me, for anyone really, thanks a lot!!!!!

Oh and I would be honoured and so would others if you drop by....

Was at the nursing home visiting a friend and taking her Mother's Day goodies and a gift I made. Just got home...


Week 2 is up, why don't you stop by, share the post or let people know w that hashtag?

Can we beat last weekend's successful community engagement and comments?

I've asked @papa-pepper to stop by with his hot peppers and have fun with the group around the fire!

Remember this post runs all weekend, every weekend!!!

Thanks for sharing the god news of it actually happening. I had been waiting for it for a while since it had been mentioned a while ago. Good for us all! Namaste :)

Started in Febuary.. Should be done in the next week or 2!

@Klye man, my first comment out of 2 is simply this:

I am honestly super happy to see you earning big money here these days, every post, not just this beauty of a post here now way over $500

If anyone deserves it on here, with everything you do in this community, which covers a LOT of things you do and some things you DON'T do -- it is most certainly you.

You must be very encouraged these days and we are called to do that for one another.

I am pretty happy for you man, most sincerely your friend,

You have just been




<3 Thank you for the kind words, support and generally kick assery that is you Barry.

It's been a year of growth and learning. Glad to be of service to a community that takes care of me

Thou art

The Man!

I had noticed a few days ago in a post, you chattering away on this project and think I commented, I cannot remember now Captain.

I think this is overdue, and your work as always, on projects and useful stuff is really really nice my man.

I have nothing technical to add, you know me LOL.

Code Mercenary

+1 for that right there, you are always so creative in your wording every day.

All good sir! The cheering on is technical enough for me!

@tippy tip @klye 0.01 STEEM

An hour too early Barry. Need to get the functions and stats working on it as well as fix a few things in regards to how it calculates and stores things. :)

It'll be up and running tonight while I do some more work on it.

I am hours behind in replies, I hope you were able to see in my 900 post today for followers, that I spent a portion of that, naming you and hope it helps you as you have helped me on here bro.

I invited the IonlySaymeep account, to the #SteemitCampfire lol, I hope they show up and meep everyone there all nite hahahahaha

Love that account, classy! not spammy hahahahaha

Congratulations @klye!
Your post was mentioned in my hit parade in the following category:

  • Pending payout - Ranked 1 with $ 508,63

And the secret's out ... "nerdy code mercenary"... Keep up all the great work and have fun!

If I'm not doing it for the lulz I'm doing it because it's a challenge and some demand is there.. :D

Yes value and purpose. Challenges and demands are good to fulfill. :D

Keep the ball rolling!!! I like people that accept challenges!!

I made note of the @klye wording today here too LOL, he is such a beaut.

Hi! You can look on special donation bot called dobrobot. It works for more than a week in Golos network. It differs a little in its mechanics to regular bots (as in Reddit) because it gives autotips each time you cast a vote for somebody. More than 15 people are using this bot right now in Golos, which is shown on special statistics page with personal balances.

Disclaimer: I'm not a developer of dobrobot. @ropox is. I'm just an author of the idea.

That sounds a bit like Changetip that allowed you to tip with a message, but it collapsed a while back. I'll be checking out tippy

Yes, it has the same idea around ChangeTip. You got it!

Interesting work @everythink. I'll get this in front of @klye for sure.

Thanks for letting me know. We'll have to reach out to @ropox for sure.

... I should add optional memos!

And yes. It is based off the reddit bot that was up for a while.

I see something like this using Doge ran into problems. I'd hope Steemit security will help to avoid something similar. I guess people could create their own personal bot to tip on their behalf.

For memos, could we have something like "@tippy tip fredbloggs 0.01 STEEM and say Thanks for the cool demo".

@tippy - Tip: ERROR - Steemit Tip Bot

You didn't have a @tippy account or balance so one was created!
( @tippy is currently being developed, please don't deposit at this time! )

@steevc Looks like it's working quite well hahaha, it registered you!

Was invited personally by Ned after he extended support for my development endevours.. :D

May man! Congrats are in order :)

Hope you complete this project soon ...
All the Best ...

It's very complicated to get it right.. :P

This is great! Does it mean that we can then give a tip to anybody in the community while chatting with them?


We are back in action!


Keep the innovation coming with the bitcoin future!!!

Nice job man. I like this idea.

It will make it extremely easy to tip our favourite STEEM users!

I cant wait for communities and all it will bring to steemit!

That's really, really awesome!
I saw your "Top Secret" test post earlier and knew that you were up to something.
Good stuff!

I'm here to help develop our network and community..!


That sounds very fun!

Sounds interesting ! Keep up the great work !! 👍👍👍

Will do Karen! Have a gooder!

What about those Sens !!! Woot woot !!🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒👍

I love that you can cheer for all Canadian teams KMac.

My deal is the Jays, it is the only worldly thing I have invested any time in, the last 3 years now, trying to spend a bit of time each week relaxing after my injuries and all my activism.

Half their starting lineup along with 3 key pitchers are on the DL now, = nearly $100M of payroll.

Or about half of what the trending page payouts now look like lol

Lol thanks ! Well Edmontons out Boo Hoo! But we do have 1 left The Sens !! Go Ottawa Go !! There going to tough road ahead though against Pitsburg and Crosby !! It will be fun to watch at least ! Steeming on !🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒

Their rink is literally out in the middle of nowhere LOL. It is so stupid LOL

Haha ! I know , and i totally agree with you !!👍👍💻

This is awesome! Great work @kyle I'm really looking forward to this feature.

Love this idea! Thanks for all your hard work. It seems that you have a passion for coding and using it to help the community makes it even more awesome. Keep up the great work and look forward to updates.

We will wait for mext week

great sharing i will check steem.global its look amazing.

Go Klye!

Nice :)

Hey @klye this sounds awesome. I look forward to seeing it in action. hey yo @tippy please tip some steem to @klye specifically designated for purchasing poutine. That will be my first test use case.

Gosh so nice. My company needs this: https://steemit.com/hooray/@surpassinggoogle/hooray-the-giving-factory-unloading-courtesy-of-the-steem-blockchain-dreams-almost-equals-reality
i have been drained by doing it manually, but will @tippy work to send to a list of users at once. i have been wanting to discuss this with you!

Tippy will be by comment. A list is a different function, but could be made possible with NodeJS.

I hadn't intended on making a mass tip feature... But I may see if I can make something like what you describe here. :)

Very interesting! Good luck!

Very cool

Thanks man!

good job, mate!
