question: What's the easiest/simplest way to build and host a bot that scrapes a reddit feed and toots only posts with images? cc @botwiki

@dragfyre Haven't really done much with Reddit, but these open-source bots might be helpful: botwiki.org/bot/?networks=redd

Unless you do want to go down the web scraping route instead, in which case I'd recommend github.com/cheeriojs/cheerio for node and Beautiful Soup for Python crummy.com/software/BeautifulS

@botwiki thanks for the links! I've worked with RSS and Reddit bots before, and I might just end up doing that in the end for the project I have in mind. I was mainly hoping to find something quick and easy (and cloud-hosted) like cheapbotstootsweet, but I guess we can't have everything in life lol.
