A library to make writing IRC bots easier and more fun
Writing IRC bots is easy enough that beginners often pull it off to some success. But writing extensible, maintainable, IRC bots that are abstracted from the details of the protocol is difficult. twisted.words.protocols.irc makes that a wee bit easier, but you still need to deal with some things you probably don’t care about, like ‘factories’ or ‘protocols’ and such things. There are also some harder problems like persistence of state, configuration, and module reloading that don’t have obvious solutions.
tbot tries to make that simpler, letting you focus on what you care about: doing cool things in IRC.
