A pmxbot glossary extension.

Project description

# pmxbot-glossary

Glossary extension for [pmxbot](https://bitbucket.org/yougov/pmxbot/wiki/Home).

## Command Examples

  • !gl define carrot: an orange rod
    • Creates a definition.
  • !gl define carrot: an orange vegetable
    • Creates a new definition, but does not overwrite the old one.
  • !gl carrot
    • Gets the latest definition of carrot.
  • !gl carrot 1
    • Gets the first definition of carrot.
  • !gl
    • Gets the latest definition of a random entry.

## Why?

This extension is an effort to test the following hypothesis:

Maintaining definitions of domain lingo via a chat bot is the best way to keep those definitions up to date and readily accessible (assuming the group uses some form of internet chat).

I believe this may be the case because:

  • It allows painless updating of the definitions (no pull requests, etc.).
  • It allows painless retrieval of the definitions.
  • It enables somewhat automatic review of definitions as they are added or retrieved.
  • It keeps the definitions in front of the eyes of the domain experts, maximizing the chances they will spot an obsolete or misguided entry.
