Hosting bots on Glitch

Before you start making bots, consider reading these essays and articles. Also worth browsing: resources for cleaning up your bot's language.

Botwiki on Glitch 🎏

What is Glitch?

Glitch is a community (and a website) that “helps you build the app or bot of your dreams”. Botwiki has several tutorials and guides on how to use Glitch to create and host bots.

In fact, it’s Stefan’s Twitter bot templates that power many of the Twitter apps on Glitch. His templates provide a useful springboard to the throngs of devs who are eager to quickly create a Twitter app or bot on Glitch, and they’ve already been remixed by more than 350 other app creators.

An experimental new feature on Botwiki lets you import open source bot code directly into Glitch: look for the Remix on Glitch button on most of the open source bot pages.

Note that Glitch only supports node.js and (unofficially) Python. Also, some bots will need a few updates to work on Glitch (see guides below).
