Recently, I launched my own ebooks bot.
If you read the twitter_ebooks README, you’ll see that you can use the command
ebooks consume to generate a text model for the bot to work from based on a JSON archive of tweets, or a plain text file.
This is nice, but one question I had was, can I build my text model from multiple sources?
It’s not currently documented in the README, but it turns out you can. To do so, you use the
ebooks consume-all command.
The signature is as follows…
$ ebooks consume-all <model_name> <corpus_path> [corpus_path2] [...]
consume-all mentioned in the usage string if you run
ebooks with no arguments.
$ ebooks Usage: ebooks help <command> ebooks new <reponame> ebooks s[tart] ebooks c[onsole] ebooks auth ebooks consume <corpus_path> [corpus_path2] [...] ebooks consume-all <model_name> <corpus_path> [corpus_path2] [...] ebooks append <model_name> <corpus_path> ebooks gen <model_path> [input] ebooks archive <username> [path] ebooks tweet <model_path> <botname> ebooks version
While this is helpful, ideally, I think this feature should be documented in the README.
I submitted a PR to do just that here. However, the project hasn’t been updated in a while, so I’m not sure if / when it will be merged.
I hope you found this post helpful. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to drop a note below, or, as always, you can reach me on Twitter as well.
