Project Description

A helga command to generate either haiku or tanka poems. All five or seven syllable lines are user generated and stored using this plugin. Usage:

helga (haiku|tanka) [blame|tweet|about <term>|by <nick>|(add|add_use|use|remove|claim) (fives|sevens) (INPUT ...)].

Without any arguments helga haiku or helga tanka will produce a randomly generated haiku or tanka from stored five or seven syllable lines respectively. Each subcommand acts as follows:

Get a list of the nicks of the users that authored the lines of a generated haiku
about <term>
Generate a haiku or tanka using a given term. This term supports any valid regular expression. For example, !haiku about foo will search for lines containing ‘foo’, but !haiku about foo$ will only return lines that end with foo
by <nick>
Generate a haiku or tanka with lines by the given nick. If not enough lines exist for this nick, then lines are selected at random
add (fives|sevens) (INPUT ...)
Add a five or seven syllable line to the database but do not generate a poem
add_use (fives|sevens) (INPUT ...)
Add a five or seven syllable line to the database and then generate and return a poem containing that line
use (fives|sevens) (INPUT ...)
Generate a poem containing the given five or seven syllable line, but do not store it for future poems
claim (fives|sevens) (INPUT ...)
Allows the requesting user to claim authorship of a given five or seven syllable line

A bit of an undocumented feature, but poems can be tweeted to some Twitter account. For example, generating a poem with !haiku followed by !haiku tweet. This requires some additional settings:
