Autumn (formerly Autumn Leaves) is a full-featured framework on top of which IRC bots and other IRC programs can be quickly and easily built. It features a very Ruby-like (and poignant!) approach to bot writing, model-view-controller separation, a complete framework for loading and daemonizing your bots, an advanced Ruby IRC client, multiple environment contexts, and more!
