I'm happy that I'll be part of two meetings this month in front of the EU Commission talking about decentralized social networks and the work we've done https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/ec-ngi0-liaison-webinars-and-workshop-april-2021/1539
I believe this conversation is an important one to have, and I'd like to expand on why below.
@dredmorbius I haven't set up the cron job yet, but when I do it will run automatically. Currently I run the script by hand, then it checks for mentions and creates the chart(s).
So mostly ... yes.
I need to worry about running it while it's already processing previous mentions ... it's not re-entrant.
So I need to set a flag while running to inhibit a re-run, then it's ready to go.
@dredmorbius You can invoke it by replying to a toot you want charted, and mentioning the 'bot by name.
Would you like to test it? We can delete the toots and charts afterwards.
