Technology stack

I have used nodejs and discord.js for build this BOT. I have also used my own steemtools API to collect data. I have used request module for get data from API. I have used heroku for deploying this bot directly from github.

Roadmap

My future plan for this bot is adding more functions. Normally its a counter bot. It displays the total words, characters & upvotes. In future, I will add some more command to display this separately. I also want to bring This bot to steemit blog. When A user post in a specific categories, the bot replied with total words and characters. This bot can help the contest creators to counting total words.

  • Add More commands
  • Bring it in steemit Comment BOT

Thank you for your contribution @nawab69 !

  1. I use this file to evaluate your work.
  2. Steem Posts URLs are not limited to steemit.com and thus this message.content.startsWith("https://steemit.com") could be refactored to a function e.g. isSteemURL(url)
  3. The varcould be replaced by either const or let.
  4. Your source code should have been formatted and properly indented.
  5. JSON.parse should be wrapped in try..catch in case of bad format data
  6. Currently, what the bot can do is very limited and I would personally think this could be better fit to a tutorial category if you polish the texts a little bit.

Your contribution has been evaluated according to Utopian policies and guidelines, as well as a predefined set of questions pertaining to the category.
