Running akkoma/plermora in docker in WSL

Sat Nov 19 17:55:44 UTC 2022

This isn't an exhaustive how-to, just a list of some of the complications I ran into. I'm running the standard Ubuntu 20.04 WSL image from the Microsoft store, I think.

Remember when 500MB was a lot?

Remember when people would record that night's episode of ER on a VCR?

In the end it was too easy to set this up. THANKS UNIX. I was planning to have to learn (more) python and choose a python Twitter library etc but in the end I just used TTYtter.pl called from a shell script. I even got to use TR(1) to strip newlines, woo-hoo!

So the bot is made up of:

It's a demonstration of the power of the Unix Philosophy of small well-defined tools that can be joined together easily.

Tweeting fortunes is fun but I'm thinking about creating a better source of tweets:
