Retrieve calling info from Fritzbox, expose to jabber Multi User Chatroom
This bot does not work properly yet. It cannot keep a connection open properly yet. The underlying library does not handle this in a suitable way either. So I might release an update, or use some totally different library, like hubot. Right now I check every morning what failed this time and try to handle that case.
Small bot that monitors your FRITZ!Box for incoming calls and informs a multiuserchat in jabber.
How to use
For this to work, it needs a bunch of configuration options. The script needs a configuration file in ~/starzelbot.cfg. The configuration needs a main section. This is how a sample configuration could look like:
[main] username = firstname.lastname@example.org password = xxx room = email@example.com fritzbox = 192.168.1.1
The egg exposes a script called fritzbot. The fritzbot script does not accept any parameters, and it blocks. If you want to run it in the background, start it with nohup.
In normal operation, the script generates no output. So it should be save to start it via cron.
What does it do
A FRITZ!Box with VoIP offers an interface to get informed of incoming calls.
This information gets exposed via a simple interface accessible on the FRITZ!Box at port 1012
This bot connects to this port on the FRITZ!Box and tries to extract the caller.
For each call, it sends a message to a multi user chatroom on jabber.
