Progether IRC-Bot

The progether IRC bot was written by the subreddit community /r/progether and is still in progress. Our bot is currently up on heroku.

It is currently one of the active Python programming projects as well. For information you can visit the community

This project needs the "requests" and "psycopg2" libraries installed.

Both of these can be installed using pip like this: pip install requests , and pip install psycopg2.


Most commands should be used while messaging the bot, so you don't flood the channel

Note: To list all commands after messaging the bot, simply type "!!help commands"

If you are a Windows user you can simply run this program by running "py -3" if you have multiple versions installed.

This can be done by typing "/msg progether !!help" This will send a message to the bot ,and it will message you.
