FICS client library.

Project description

mekk.fics is a Python access library for FICS. It can be used to write FICS bots and clients in Python. drone-badge

Status

The code works, and is actively used, but covers only part of FICS functionality.

Core functionality (handling FICS connections, command management etc) works, is stable and have been used by WatchBot for many years.

Parsing routines (converting various FICS notifications and replies to commands) are implemented only for some commands and notifications. New parsers are mostly added on demand, whenever some new command or information turns out to be useful.

Main APIs should be stable, data structures can be modified from time to time.
