Welcome to another automation post! This is a super simple Python script for changing misspelled or wrong tags in your Pinboard account. I started using Pinboard again because it helps me save all these great articles I read on the Interwebz, so I can paraphrase and regurgitate them back to you. Ha!
I need to clean out the Pinboard tags every so often because I hooked it up to Twitter.
I wrote a small Python script to automate feed extraction and posting it to Twitter. The feed? My feed burner feed for this site. The script is super simple and uses the Twython Pandas, and Feedparser libraries. The rest, I believe, comes stock with your Python 3 installation.
How it works It’s really a simple process. First it takes a feed, then parses it, does a few things to it, saves it to a CSV file, and text file.
I’m going to share an update to my original python script. It’s super simple and it completely automates parsing multiple blog feeds for you to autopost on Twitter.
The goal: automation!!!
Call the Python Modules! Create a new empty python script. Call it awesomescript.py or something else. You’ll need to have feedparser and twython installed first. If you don’t go and do ‘pip install feedparser’ and ‘pip install Twython.’
A few months ago I read about a programmer that automated his job down to the point where the coffee machine would make him lattes! Despite the ethical quandary, I thought it was pretty cool to automate your job with scripts. Then I wondered, was it possible to automate data science? Or at least parts of it? This general question proved to be a rabbit hole of exploration.
StackExchange has an ongoing discussion into another programmer’s automation of his tasks.
