Hubot Skype Adapter


This is the Skype adapter for hubot that allows you to communicate with hubot through Skype.


  • Add hubot-skype as a dependency in your hubot's package.json
  • Install dependencies with npm install
  • Install Python dependancy Skype4py with pip or easy_install
  • Log into a Skype client on the same machine you are running hubot
  • Run hubot with bin/hubot -a skype


The Skype adapter works by communicating through a locally running skype client. You need to create a Skype account for your bot, and log into it on a Skype client running on the same machine as hubot. When you first launch hubot with the Skype adapter, Skype will prompt you to allow for API permission. You must allow this before the bot will work.
