Project description

This is a general purpose chat bot, extensible in varios ways. The reason, why it was written is because NodeJS and CoffeeScript are sucks and Hubot uses them.

There are some bots written in Python, but all of them sucks, because, most of the works only with IRC and none of them has such beautiful architecture as The Bot.

But if you still have some doubts, here is a list of some bots. Go, try them and come back to ask The Bot to forgive you treason.
