NabContext is UI stuff you won't need.

Look more at https://github.com/notabugio/notabug/blob/master/src/notabug-peer/write.js

and

https://github.com/notabugio/notabug/blob/master/server/index.js

Been thinking about splitting out the parts that would help with such botting to its own module but for now your best bet is probably to modify server/index.js to include your logic.

Thanks, was looking at that first but it looked like NabContext provided some necessary config stuff. I can look there for an example though if any of that is needed.

NabContext is a react context that brings together tools and config necessary for the UI.

the object created by notabugPeer (nab) in there is similar to the object created in server/index.js and is what you will primarily use to interact with the network.

You're asking notabug how to hack notabug?

Not to how hack, just how to interface ;)

I suspect that creating a few spaces filled with interesting aggregated content might draw in some niche groups to contribute content. I think I can make this happen without ruining the rest of NAB. (Most topics are not indexed on the front page. As long as I stay away from those topics then piped-in content shouldn't cause problems.)

A javascript bookmarklet?

Visiting a page, hit the "Share with Notabug" in your bookmark bar.

I think ⌛ is more interested in a full on bot, in fact their RSS plans are something I want to explore at some point too; but even better if someone beats me to it.

If you want to do the share thing though, you can use links like: https://notabug.io/t/whatever/submit?title=Title%20Here&url=https://example.com to pre-fill the form.

When I get around to adding cross posting support it will likely function that way as well (a link to a pre-filled submission form)
