Developer: DRSDavidSoft

Please note: I would like to know your opinions, ideas, suggestions, feedbacks and comments on this project. - Also if you are a software developer like me, please let me know

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.

That's great! Please note me on ways I can help you to automate stuff for you. Most of the features are operational as of writing this.

I hope it's not just for Android, but for desktop computers, too (I'm using Firefox and W10).
epelito Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2016
droid: short for android
android: (in science fiction) a robot resembling a human being

.. this is not a bot for android phones
iamthejam Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2016
Right. I'm asking for it to be made for DESKTOP.

DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner May 2, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
epelito Thanks for clarifying! 
iamthejam already knows that, since he did not use the word 'bot' in his comments even once.
Writing in caps doesn't always mean shouting. He was just emphasizing on the word, so by mis-interpreting it, the rudeness kind of goes towards you.

A lot of people mistake droid for short of Android, but not Jam. He was merely asking for a Windows implementation.
Also, while dADroid APIs are not considered a bot, developers can actually use it to create bots. dADroid-bot is an example.

Since it can be run on Servers, mobile apps can also connect to dADroid and use it, if it is required.
But the main usage will be a Desktop Application running on one's computer, as epelito said and iamthejam already knows.

So, all is good? I am sorry myself if anything is misleading.
epelito thanks again for trying to help, but you mis-understood iamthejam's point.

Sorry again if anyone got offended by anyone.
Have a great day!

AvantiNostalgia Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
That would be super great...
I thought about it even 2 or 3 years ago, when Dahub just appeared and I've got the chance to have a core membership or to support my friends with points... when I've started to earn points using Dahub.
Yes, earning points on dahub is like a videogame to me, hehe. It's fun to give llamas, watches and favs, I enjoy it very much.
But sometimes it gets boring.

While I did all of this routine, I've thought I'd be extremely happy if I could develop some bot which will do that for me from my multiple accounts... And I'll just relax and do what I'm educated & inspired to do - making artworks. ...While those earned points will work to "adcast" and advertise my art on Dahub. I could do more art this way. With releasing myself from earning points by watching for hours someone's "art" which I'm not interested in... Maybe it sounds rude, but it's true for many dahubbers, I think.

And not only Dahub! It's very useful to have an opportunity to thank everyone who faved and watched me. If you get some hundreds of favs per work (like I did from my former account))), - thanking everyone gets very difficult, hehe. XD

What about you, DavidSoft... I'm standing up and clapping. :iconclapplz: 
I'm really happy with this kind of project by you, it's extremely useful and I think you know it. It's so great that someone eventually will make this. That's so great when developers and artists meet.
I'll watch you to know all of your news.

Cheers from Russia, comrade! ~:heart:

What an awesome bot! I'd love to be notified once it's fully released. :D
RealmSprinter Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2016  Student Digital Artist
oh my god this would be incredibly helpful ;u;
I get quite the number of llama's every few days(or everyday oftenly), it'd be really helpful if we had a bot around the website to help out with that. This is a really smart idea ^^ Would love to know when it's officially online in the future ^^

Keep it going pal >u<
FairestMoss Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2016
Hm, if I could request one thing, it would actually be to develop an option that stops users from leaving "thank you" messages on my profile. o: Messages like "Thank you for the llama!", or the fav, or the watch. There's not really a good reason for it, I just get so tired of the community-wide spam. '~`; It's such a common response that I really don't feel like most people even mean it. Admittedly it would be nice if someone could convince me otherwise.

Anyway, it would be nice if I could be notified when this bot is officially released to the public. c:
