So I coded up the basic features today and put it up at https://github.com/MattyIce/postpromoter and have also delegated 8,000 SP to the @postpromoter account to actually run the software and put it through its paces!
Naturally it's also been added to the Steem Bot Tracker website so you can bid responsibly!
The features are currently very basic, but I plan to add more over time - or maybe someone else here can also contribute! Additionally I plan to write some tutorial posts that walk through the code so others can learn how to build similar projects on Steem!
- Min and max SBD bid amounts
- Option for enabling / disabling bids on comments
- Ability to set a template the bot will use to comment on posts it upvotes
Future Features (To-Do List)
- Support different bid window lengths
- Automatically refund invalid bids
- Blacklist to block spammer accounts
- Disabled mode which automatically refunds all bids
- Admin panel website to adjust settings and monitor status / bid windows
- User-facing website showing details about the bot
