#186 Run worldcloudbot on @fedoracommunity Twitter account
Opened 3 months ago by jflory7. Modified 8 days ago

wordcloudbot is a bot that listens to fedmsg, makes fancy world clouds, and tweets them on Twitter. Once upon a time it existed but it fell by the wayside. It would be cool to revisit it now and try to deploy this.

Rather than running this on Twitter, perhaps GNU Social or Mastodon should be considered, possibly with a relay to Twitter if that is a must-have. Twitter is a proprietary centralized service, whereas GNU Social and Mastodon are FLOSS, decentralized, and can be run by anyone.

Discussed in 2018-11-21 meeting.


In yesterday's meeting, we agreed to put this ticket on target for completion during the Fedora 30 release cycle.

An older CommOps project, wordcloudbot, takes Fedora meeting minutes, generates a word cloud from most-used words in a meeting, and automatically posts the results to a Twitter account. It would be cool to get this working again and set up on the @fedoracommunity Twitter account.

Next steps likely include a revisit to the original code (some modernization might be needed), testing it out with existing Fedora meetings locally, and then getting it running on a server so the tweets happen automatically.

We’ll begin exploring this at the next CommOps meeting. Maybe @siddharthvipul1, @sumantrom, or @algogator could help get this added to GCI 2018.

We're having related discussion about this, including the above comment about Mastodon support, over on Discourse.

In the meeting, we didn't have any immediate volunteers to work on this. We decided to do some promotion / visibility around this ticket to see if we can find a volunteer outside of a core team member. Next, we need to find a volunteer interested in Python and fedmsg. Some coding background is helpful, but only at a beginner level.

@bt0dotninja is working on a CommBlog post for "Winter 2018 CommOps easyfix tasks" and we'll use that to try and drive more participation in the team. We can follow it up with social media / user community coverage too. @jonatoni was going to experiment with Instagram Stories to highlight contribution opportunities, once this CommBlog post publishes.

We'll check in on the draft status at next week's meeting.
