izzilis gpt-2 bot

Meant to be used with a finetuned GPT-2 model


To run the bot, you need a valid bot_config.json file at the path where you're running the bot. If you do not have one, izzilis will generate a default one for you to fill out.

This bot currently requires a Telegram bot token to work, as there is no option to disable curation. To create a bot, please use the Botfather. Once created, and running, set a channel for the bot to post curation options in via the /setmain bot command. Usually this requires sending /setmain@bot_username to the chat with the bot (can be group chats).

This default uses the Misskey publisher. If you want to publish to Mastodon, Pleroma, or any other mastodon-compatible API, please replace Misskey in the publisher object with Mastodon.

The publisher can currently hold one of two JSON objects, named either Mastodon or Misskey, which determines which posting API it will use. Whether the object is Misskey or Mastodon, it has the following members:

Name Value
base_url The base URL of the instance
token The auth token for the account, leave empty for Mastodon as you will be prompted to log in and authorize
visibility The visibility scope of the statuses to be posted. These differ between publishers, see the list below

Misskey visibility values

  • Public (Global)
  • Home
  • Followers
  • Specified (DMs)

Mastodon-comptaibles visibility values

  • public (Global)
  • unlisted (Home)
  • private (Followers only)
  • direct (DMs)

An example Misskey publisher entry looks like this:

	"publisher": {
		"Misskey": {
			"base_url": "",
			"token": "",
			"visibility": "Public"

And for mastodon/pleroma:

	"publisher": {
		"Mastodon": {
			// Token will be set by izzilis on authentication (requires interactive)
			"base_url": "",
			"visibility": "public"
