The “reddit uiuc-bot”, u/uiuc-bot, is designed to serve the r/uiuc community – one of the largest college-based reddit communities – with commonly used shorthand and other helpful tasks.
The first ability the u/uiuc-bot provides is fetching information on classes offered here at Illinois. The r/uiuc-bot will be called by post substrings that match any of the following formats:
[cs225], will call me,
[Cs225], I’m not that case-sensitivity,
[CS 225], a space between the subject and course is fine,
, and so is a five-digit CRN
Additionally, the bot now replies to messages sent to it in the same format! (Added via PR from John Lay.)
The source code for the bot is an open-source project hosted on github @illinois:
