Rando Chrontendo

Rando Chrontendo is a Twitter bot that tweets a random frame from Dr. Sparkle's wonderful Chrontendo project every 30 minutes.

If you are not familiar with Chrontendo, it's a long-running video project that is covering every officially released NES, Famicom, & Famicom Disk System game in order of release.

You can watch Chrontendo on YouTube or download the videos from Internet Archive. If you enjoy them, please also consider contributing to the Patreon.

The code for this bot is quite simple. It's just a few lines of Python. It could be better, but it gets the job done. It runs on a tiny EC2 instance as a cronjob, and the videos are all on an EBS volume. Once again, could be better, but gets the job done.

This webpage is a bit of HTML with basic Bootstrap styling sitting in an S3 bucket. Again, could be b—you get the idea.

I hope you enjoy all the Nintendo weirdness this bot produces! If you like it, you'll love Chrontendo!
