Alfredo is a gtalk bot born so serve you.

Project description

Alfredo - Born to serve!

Alfredo is a simple, extensible gtalk bot. It's capable of doing any kind of tasks, implemented as separated commands.

Here is a typical session: ::

you: inv some text
alfredo: called inv some text -> txet emos

Implementing a new command

Commands are implemented as Plugins (more at plugnplay <>). Just create a new class:

from alfredo import Plugin, ICommand

class SomeCommand(Plugin):
implements = [ICommand]

def help(self):
return ('short help', 'long help')

def name(self):
return 'mycommand'

def match_name(self, command):
return 'mycommand' == command

def run(self, user, *args)
# process some logic
return result

In this case we create a new command named 'mycommand'. If we send this message to alfredo:

mycommand p1 p2 p3

the ``run()`` method would be called like this: ``run('', 'p1', 'p2', 'p3')``. This method must return a string, that will be sent back to the original user.

How to use it

To start talking to a running instance of alfredo just add ```` to your gtalk conacts list and you are done!

Or try out your own commands from the example code.


Alfredo's core components only needs:

* plugnplay -
* xmpppy -

The included commands needs:

* BeautifulSoup -
* requests -
* simplejson -

You can even run the requirements file to get up your environment::

pip install -r requirements.txt
