Quick Start

import zirc, ssl

class Bot(zirc.Client):
    def __init__(self):
        self.connection = zirc.Socket(wrapper=ssl.wrap_socket)
        self.config = zirc.IRCConfig(host="irc.freenode.net",
            port=6697,
            nickname="zirctest",
            ident="bot",
            realname="test bot",
            channels=["##chat"],
            caps=zirc.Caps(zirc.Sasl(username="username", password="password")))

        self.connect(self.config)
        self.start()

    def on_privmsg(self, event, irc):
        irc.reply(event, "It works!")
        #Or alternatively:
        #irc.privmsg(event.target, "It works!")

Bot()

This library implements the IRC protocol, it’s an event-driven IRC Protocol framework.

Installation

PyPi

sudo pip install zirc
sudo pip3 install zirc

Github

sudo pip install git+https://github.com/itslukej/zirc.git
sudo pip3 install git+https://github.com/itslukej/zirc.git

Github will contain the latest bug fixes and improvements but sometimes also “bad quality” code.

Features

  • Automatic PING/PONG between the server
  • IRC Message parsing
  • A simple set up and connection method
  • Easy installation
  • Easy CTCP Set-up

IPv6

To use IPv6 with zirc.Socket, you can use the family socket.AF_INET6:

import socket

self.connection = zirc.Socket(family=socket.AF_INET6)

Proxy

Initialize zirc.Socket with argument socket_class:

self.connection = zirc.Socket(socket_class=zirc.Proxy(host="localhost", port=1080, protocol=zirc.SOCKS5))

Ideas

  • Multiple connection support

TODO

  • More documentation

Please discuss code changes that significantly affect client use of the library before merging to the master branch. Change the version in setup.py ahead if the change should be uploaded to PyPi.
