Replies to toxic comments with a maintainer designated reply and a link to the repo’s code of conduct. It does so by taking data from a .github/config.yml.

Usage

  1. Install the bot on the intended repositories. The app requires the following Permissions and Events:
    • Issues: Read & Write
      • Issue Comment events
  2. Add a .github/config.yml file that contains the following:
# Configuration for sentiment-bot - https://github.com/behaviorbot/sentiment-bot

# *Required* toxicity threshold between 0 and .99 with the higher numbers being the most toxic
# Anything higher than this threshold will be marked as toxic and commented on
sentimentBotToxicityThreshold: .7

# *Required* Comment to reply with
sentimentBotReplyComment: >
  Please be sure to review the code of conduct and be respectful of other users. cc/ @hiimbex

# Note: the bot will only work if your repository has a Code of Conduct
  1. Be sure to check out the Perspective API before choosing your toxicity threshold to get a feel for what kind of comments would register at what toxicity threshold.
