A fully functioning multi-threaded IRC client.

Project description

This is a multi-threaded IRC bot that was designed to connect to multiple networks and load multiple modules. An example bot would look like:

#!/usr/bin/env python
from __future__ import unicode_literals

from mtirc import bot
from mtirc import settings

config = settings.config
config['nick'] = 'nick'

def thing(**kw):
    if kw['text'].startswith('!whoami'):
        kw['bot'].queue_msg(kw['channel'], 'You are {0} with the host {1}.'.format(
            kw['sender'].nick, kw['sender'].host))
    return True

config['modules']['whoami'] = thing

b = bot.Bot(config)


  • Nearly every thing is configurable
  • Settings can be set for an individual connection or globally
  • Can use as many parse threads as set in config
  • Will attempt to reconnect if disconnected
  • Will disable modules after too many exceptions
  • More to come!
