“A color for the weather” @
I wanted to get experience using nodeJS so I decided to do my bot using it. After looking at many bots out there and following a couple of tutorials on how to make a bot, i decided to create my own!
Every 30 min., Space Nietzsche Bot selects a city and grabs its current weather information. Once I have this information I use the temperature, precipitation and wind bearing to calculate a color representation. I create an image with that color and then i post a new tweet.
Originally the tweet had a static “The current color weather of city <bla> is <img>”
I realized this was very boring so I added some adjective randomness to make the tweet more interesting! Now it is : “The <adjective and connector> color of city is <adjective and connector>.
When adding the randomness I also added a random var that will sometimes add a random hastag to the tweet.
The bot can be found :
