I have created my first python project.
It’s just a simple script that posts to facebook. I’ve wanted to create something like this to automate my posting for Talk’n tech, a reading group where we share interesting articles.
It actually took less work than I expected. I thought it’d take me a whole weekend to get the script working. It turns out I only needed 3 hours. I learned a lot about Facebook’s api, and handling files and executing shell commands with Python. I also learned about the proper way of handling cron jobs in Ubuntu.
