Masto mods and admins, please open - new anti-spam tool
Say hello to Ivory, a new anti-spam tool for Mastodon. I've been working on this under wraps for the masto.tech mod team this weekend. This can auto-handle reports for you. Please let me know if you're having troubles setting it up or running it. It's using Selenium (I know, I know) so things will probably break. Still, it's a workable stopgap measure while we await the Moderation API.
@socialskeleton You can run this on your local machine if you'd like - all it needs is credentials to a mod account and a Firefox driver. I'm actually not even sure it can run without a window manager.
@bclindner It should be able to run with a Xvfb or Xephyr instance and a simple WM like TWM, if you wanted to wrap it in an API on a VPS.
@SuperFloppies Ideally I want to cut Selenium out entirely. It sucks for this. I could probably do this with just an HTML parser and it'd be cleaner to run, if more involved to write and maintain.
