A Jabber-Bot that can be told things to say via XML-RPC.

Project description

Bender is a Jabber-Bot.

Its main functionality is to be always online, joined to a groupchat (MUC), and to accept messages to say there via HTTP POST. Thus, other systems (e.g. Nagios, Continuous Integration etc.) can perform Jabber notifications without having to speak Jabber themselves (and without any join/part noise).

You can tell Bender to say something like this:

curl -d "Say something" http://user:password@host:port

Quotes

Bender also sometimes randomly says things by itself (Bender quotes). To avoid flooding the channel, there are three thresholds:

  • Only say something with a given probability.
  • Only say something if we haven’t said anything for a given time.
  • Only say something if at least a given number of messages from other people have been said in the chatroom.

Deployment

Bender is deployed and configured using buildout. Here is an example configuration file:

[buildout]
extends = profiles/prod.cfg

[config]
chatroom = my-chat@jabber.org
jabber_user = bender-user
jabber_password = secret
min_silence_duration = datetime.timedelta(minutes=5)
min_human_messages = 10
speaking_probability = 1.0 / (10 * 60)
loglevel = INFO
http_address = 0.0.0.0:8099
http_user = bender
http_password = http_secret
