A simple chat bot, at your service.
Jeev is a python alternative to Github’s famous Hubot, using Python+Gevent instead of Node+CoffeeScript.
I got tired of Hubot’s callback spaghetti, and decided to write an alternative to work with my company’s slack channel. This project is a work in progress, and is roughly documented.
# Installing Jeev
You will need Python 2.7, and setuptools. If you want, you can install Jeev in a virtual environment.
Install jeev (and his built in modules) with pip:
$ pip install jeev jeev-modules
This will install jeev, and his dependencies. It will also give you the
jeev command which can be used to create
an initial jeev configuration, and run the bot. Let’s create an instance of jeev in the folder “myjeev”:
$ jeev init myjeev
If you want to use jeev with heroku, or just have your Jeev instance inside of a git repository, the newly created directory has everything you need: the configuration file, a few sample modules, a .gitignore file (so that you can safely add everything to git).
$ cd myjeev $ git init $ git add . $ git commit -m “Jeev’s initial commit.”
Now you can run Jeev by simply calling:
$ jeev run
This will start Jeev using the console adapter that will read messages from stdin, and print out Jeev’s responses to stdout.
$ jeev run >>> Jeev Console Adapater >>> Switch channel using c channel_name >>> Switch user using u user_name >>> Jeev will respond to the user name Jeev [user@test] >
