Tripos Bot

Tripos Bot: your weekly math WTF.

Required Software

This uses pdflatex to convert LaTeX to PDF, and ImageMagick (convert) to convert PDF to JPG.

This bot also uses my rainbow mind machine twitter bot library.

Turn Latex Into Images

One-time thing: run pdflatex and convert on each of the problems in latex/:


Tweet A Problem A Day

Run the bot to tweet a problem each day.


How It Works

This uses the Rainbow Mind Machine library, which is designed to run an arbitrary number of Twitter Bots, to run a single bot.

This extends the Sheep class defined in Rainbow Mind Machine (1 sheep = 1 bot) to tweet a photo once per day.

(The Sheep class defines its own tweet scheduling.)
