This page is for project participants to ask for help with significant tasks within the ForkTogether project. They don't have to be technical.
I could use assistance from anyone familiar with the process of getting bots working with Mastodon. I got as far as being able to connect to an instance and get public information, but anything beyond that seems to require creating or accessing some kind of key (a "shared secret", I think?) and I don't know how to do that.
I'll be writing in PHP, but you don't have to know PHP to be helpful; I think I mainly need to know what the process is in an algorithmic kind of way. Tell me what needs to happen, and I can figure out how to make PHP do it.
The same applies for Discord bot authorship, although my needs for that are less immediate.
