Hi everyone!

For the past year I've been working on a DeviantArt-related project, called the dADroid (dADroid-bot) which is in design, a multi-purpose dA bot. Using dADroid, you can automate what you normally do easier, faster and more exact.

If you are a developer, you can use dADroid APIs to power your own bot, an example is the talkbot.

If you are a point account, you can use dADroid to automatically process activity, calculate points and give them to other users. Like what dAhub does and what dATrade formerly did.

If you are a regular user, then there is tons of features out there for you (and more coming everyday).

dADroid is currently a work in progress and in the beta stage, but feel free to test any of its available functions. Click here to begin:

I also want to collect suggestions, ideas and anything that you might have in mind regarding this project. Do you always wanted something that dA hadn't, like email notifications? Would you like to automate something that really annoys you doing manually everyday? What features that you need dA lack?

If you might have any cautions, critiques or anything in particular against this kind of things, I'd be more than glad to hear them. Any feedback is highly appreciated. :) (Smile)

Also, for the fellow developers out there, my collaboration position is open. If you'd like to integrate any part of dADroid in your own bot, or simply need help writing it, I'm there for you.

If you are interested in this project, be sure to read this:

:bulletblue: Do you miss messages left on your profile, or notes to you?
:bulletblue: Do you wish you could get an e-mail when a specified deviation shows up on your message center?
:bulletblue: Do you give llamas/watches/faves on a regular basis?
:bulletblue: Do you thank whoever gives you a llama randomly by returning another llama, or even leaving a message?
:bulletblue: Do you use points accounts like :icondahub: dAhub?
:bulletblue: Are you tired of checking the "newest" list every often, and giving llamas and/or watching deviants one by one?
:bulletblue: Or are you a points account owner?
:bulletblue: And you are would like to automate the points transfer process, but you don't have time or skill to write a bot yourself?

:bulletgreen: Then dADroid is here for you!
By joining the dADroid grid, you can automate your daily tasks, be relaxed and browse dA arts. dADroid will do the job for you. It will automatically:
- Thank people who have gave you watches/llamas/faves by sending a random comment from a specified list (plz accounts are also supported.)
- Send a welcome message when a deviant joins your group
- Return llamas to whoever have given you one
- Get you points :points: from points accounts, by giving watches/llamas/faves

o If you are a points account owner, dADroid can: o
- Find out if a specified deviant has watched/llama'd/faved a list of other deviants
- Manage how many deviants s/he has given, calculate and process the amount of points s/he earned
- Give the points to them on a regular basis or immediately

dADroid is currently helping in llama-list and Give-LlamaGetA-Llama!
The bot also automatically trades llamas every 5 hours in:

Go watch dailygiveget, it is also powered by dADroid-bot.

:bulletred: How does it work?
After logging-in to dADroid, you'll see the configuration page.
You can set different rules for dADroid. For example, you can set a task for it to check the newest dAhub's watches/llamas/faves list, set a rule to automatically give llamas to users who have gave you watches/llamas/faves or enable the automatic welcome and thanks messages.
Once every couple of minutes, dADroid will go online and read your configurations. It checks what requests needs to be done, gathers the required information from :deviantart: DeviantArt, processes the data, and replies the data, including commands, back to the dA servers.

:bulletred: How to join?
The dADroid bot is at the beta stage at the moment.
Many parts of the source code is being written right now.
Please leave a comment on this journal and watch DRSDavidSoft for future notifications.
You'll be notified when the project is online.

:bulletred: I have an idea! / I have a request.
Please let me know if you have a suggestion or request. I am open to any good and useful idea you might have.
Just ask for something, and I will write the code for it! :D

:bulletred: I want to test the Project now!
:bulletred: I am a Programmer / Software Developer
You can join the dADroid test team by noting DRSDavidSoft.
Your feedback and comments are highly appreciated.
If you are a software developer, feel free to join coding the project. It will help debugging and finishing the project way more soon.

Thanks for taking time reading this!
Looking forward for your opinions. :) (Smile)

* dAhub modules would only work for verified accounts.
** Your account would still give watches/llamas/faves, only it would be automated by the bot, and not done manually by you (i.e. pressing the "Give" button).

Thanks for all the great and encouraging comments!
I have decided to finish this project and make it online for everyone.

If you are one of these haters, no hard feelings, alright? Just ignore my project.

I would really love to use this if possible--I've got so many llamas I want to return but I simply don't have the time to do so, as a student and full-time artist.

:squee:I HAVE A SUGGESTION!!!:squee:

(It's really more of a request)

Hello, as you can see, I have a suggestion for a specific tool, or a bot.

I would like something that automates the process of adding deviations to groups. There is something similar that's already on DeviantArt, but it leaves a lot to be desired. It also only shows the groups that you're an administrator of.

What I would use would be any group, member, administrator, or neither.



1. It would automaticly decide which folder your deviation is submitted to, by comparing the information that you used for the "Select Category" section when you submitted it, to other deviations in that folder. Or something else, because I don't really know whether or not that would even be accurate.

2. Also, it would have an extra option to specify which folder it's submitted to if you decide you don't want the bot to do it.

3. It would tell you whether or not your deviation is immediately accepted. It would also tell you if the target folder is full, or you've reached the global limit.

4. You specify which groups to submit to by clicking some type of "Add Group" button. When you click this button, you would get an extra box, similar to when you give points or llamas. This box would have a "Choose Group" button, then underneath that it would say, or search current groups, and a search bar underneath that, with an alphabetized list of your groups under that. And under that, would be a select all button. The list would conatin any group that your 
associated with, along with their names, and avatars. To be counted as associated with a group, you have to be either a Member, Administrator, Co-Founder, Founder, etc. You must join the group in some way. 

It would be set up like this:

[Add Group]


Search For A Current Group:



5. To specify a group manually, you click the button and yet another, smaller, box will appear that you can type into. You will type the name exactly.

An example,

Correct: DeviousBots
Incorrect: deviousBots

Underneath the text box, you press a button, that will be a button that says "Add". If you don't type the name correctly, or it doesn't exist, it tells you.



Okay, I know that this is a lot information, and very, very specific. :| (Blank Stare) 

I kind of went all out on explaining exactly what I was imagining in my head. Sweating a little...

Sorry about that. Blush 

So, please tell me if this is possible. I understand if you don't want to. hmm 

So tell me what you think! ;p

That sounds cool. It's what I've been looking for :)

It's kinda hard clicking some deviants so that I can click the "watch" one by one... Sometimes it even takes a few minutes because of the internet connection or slow loading and stuffs.

where can I get one of these? I hardly have time to give thanks or give llama to so many people
JM-Matthews Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2017  Professional Writer
I've been using the DA Droid for the past few days. It's amazing. So much that some people just assumed I was a bot!

I want to use automatic llama return and auto reply on favs/watch/lamas! I wish it could auto-favorite certain tags, that would be awesome too!

Whenever I click the link to the dadroid page, i either am returned to this journal or told to log in, and when I do log in, nothing happens.
What do I do?
DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I noted you about the automatic llama return feature!
KoyukiKuroya Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
:damphyr: Hello! I had an idea that I haven't been able to find yet, or I just haven't searched deep enough. But was wondering if there was a bot where I can auto reply to every deviant's profile page who favs my work within a certain period of time (let's say within 24hrs of first faving). The auto reply at the end of that period will be a customized message like "Thank you so much for faving :deviationtitle:, :deviationtitle:, and :deviationtitle:, I seriously appreciate it n n" where :deviationtitle: were the deviation favorited within those 24hrs. Adding to that would be if the deviant has already favorited my work in the past, there would be an auto reply just adding "Thanks so much again blah blah n n " (I usually keep track of this with a llama but it becomes tedious when I get too many favs in a day/week).
DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey there! Sorry for the late response.

Actually, I have indeed written a tool specifically for that. The tool does exactly what you want: At specified intervals, replies to favorites, watches and/or llamas with a thank you message.

However, there are some obstacles in it:
1) It involves providing your login information which many people aren't much comfortable with.
2) Some people aren't that much fond of getting an appreciation reply. They might even block you for thanking them favoriting your work.

If you need any other automation that doesn't contain risks such as above, I'll be glad to help.

How do we login into dADroid ? and did this project started?
DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
The project is in beta stage, meaning some of the features are currently working (see dADroid-bot), but not all of it is finished.
You can login to dADroid using its link (, but in order for it do anything, you have to send a note to dADroid-bot, ans specify what you'd like it to do for you (e.g. automatic llama trading.)
Thanks for the interest!

Hi~ I would like to be the beta tester. How can I do this? Thanks~ :D
DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello, and thanks for the interest!
Please describe the features that you are interested in, and I will create a dADroid task for them.
You'll have to login into dADroid in order for it to work.

Note me, for more information.
Ashyme Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist

Do you have to be a beta tester to work this?
DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Nope, even regular users without core membership can use use this service.
However, having core and beta tester makes some features in dADroid available (e.g. Visitor Greeting)
R1VII Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I see, how could i use daDroid exactly then? or is it still not done?
sorry if i sound rushy, im not trying to.. My English is bad TT_TT
DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
It's not finished yet, I have many things to complete first.
BUT, it can still work if you want to test it out.
R1VII Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I do want to test it out! ^^ How do I do that?
DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, first you need to write a list for the tasks that you would like my app to do for you. Then, I give you a link to add your account to my application, and then it will start to work. If anything goes wrong (for example if there is a bug in my program), you have to monitor and report it to me.

And when the program is ready, you'll get a panel to work with dADroid.
Also, any paid/premium feature in dADroid is free to all beta testers.

DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I am so sorry that my code is taking longer than it should. 
I'll try to publish most of the features sooner, so you can use it!
