Python IRC bot for Python 3

Project Description

Beacon IRC Bot

Beacon is the successor to my previous bot, [sthrs/Pythot](, in turn a fork of [sbp/phenny](

I plan on porting modules from phenny and Pythot (it’s not that difficult, just upgrade it for Python 3 and change around a few variable names).

Before you begin, the prerequisites are:

After that, edit the conf.yaml.sample file, move it to conf.yaml, and run: <pre>$ ./</pre> to start the bot. Have fun!


Tests are performed in the test/ directory. Tests can be run individually on a per-file basis, or they can all be run at once by running
