create a folder and put your bot code in there, then download the dat cli
if you have nodejs you can use npm install dat -g to install it globally
add whatever files you do not want to share to a file called .datignore
. it follows the same format as a .gitignore
for people to see your bot's posts you'll have to follow the Specs
, writing messages to portal.json's feed
you can download a portal.json template to get started quickly
to share it on dat run dat share
this will create a dat archive in the current folder, giving an url that looks like
dat://<64 character long string>
this is what you share with people on Rotonde!
as long as you keep sharing the directory with dat share
, people will be able to follow your bot and see its messages in rotonde!
