Shell script to auto swipe like on Tinder. It utilizes the tool called xdotool which is a command-line X11 automation tool as the description suggests. It lets you programmatically simulate keyboard input and mouse activity, move and resize windows, etc. It does this using X11’s XTEST extension and other Xlib functions. The methodology isn’t perfected, and is more of a proof-of-concept opposed to something that will work through the test of time, and Tinder interface revisions, however it worked for me. A little too well since you end up with a gazillion mutual likes even though the auto-liked profile is a trans-dude named Flapjack. I’m out of the game/or the game is out of me, but this is where someone else can pick up the torch. A torch on its last legs that you shake vigorously like a maniac attempting to revive a bic lighter.
You will need to have the Tinder window open while the script is working, so one suggestion is to run this on a VM with a desktop environment such as Ubuntu. First step is to install
xdotool with something like
sudo apt install xdotool. You can also find these scripts somewhere here.
#!/usr/bin/env bash bash -c './tinder-refresh.sh 900' & \ bash -c './tinder-autoswipe.sh 13' & \ jobs
#!/usr/bin/env bash while true; do xdotool windowactivate --sync $(xdotool search --name "Tinder") key F5 sleep $1 done
#!/usr/bin/env bash while true; do xdotool windowactivate --sync $(xdotool search --name "Tinder") key Right sleep $1 done
#!/usr/bin/env bash kill $(pgrep -f 'tinder'|grep -v 'pgrep')
