Due to my recent work on the publiclab API, all users can now make comments on the website by making a simple
POST request. This feature is exciting because it allows us to program plotsbot, our cute little internal chatbot to post comments on the publiclab.org website.
This allows us to program the bot to do repetitive tasks on the publiclab.org website, freeing the community members who have been hitherto performing these.
I ask the community to propose ideas that can make use of this functionality and make everyone's lives easier inside the comments for this note. I will try my best to implement all of those in plotsbot.
Eg: Make the bot comment a predefined generic support message onto a research note with id
$id by sending the bot the message -
plotsbot support $id
