Framework to program bots !!

Project description


you might need to do one of the following if the bot doesn't work:


bart@okdan:~/botje$ export PYTHONPATH="."
bart@okdan:~/botje$ export PYTHONIOENCODING="utf-8"


| BOTJE is a python3 framework which you can use to program bots.
| BOTJE makes it possible to program your own module enabling your own commands.
| BOTJE contains serveral modules that can be used to program.
| BOTJE has a MIT no-clause :ref:`license <license>`.


clone the source:


bart@okdan:~$ hg clone

another option is to download with pip3 and install globally:


bart@okdan:~$ pip3 install botje --upgrade


use -n <nick>, -s <server>, -c <channel> options to make the bot join the network:


bart@okdan:~$ bot-irc -n botje -s -c \#botje


One needs to add a users origin to be able to give the bot commands. One can add a user with the meet command:


bart@okdan:~$ bot meet user@server
user user@server created

To give the user a permission you can use the perm command:


bart@okdan:~$ bot perm user@server ps
ok user@server

The default shell user is root@shell and gives access to all the commands that are available.


| User programmed modules are read from the ~/.mods directory, you can put your .py files over there.
