SockBot

Greenkeeper badge Sockbot - A sock puppet robot worthy of TheDailyWTF in EcmaScript 6.

So how do I run this thing anyway?

The global method:

  1. npm install -g sockbot
  2. For any plugins you want to use, npm install -g [plugin]
  3. Create a config.json or config.yml (see samples for formatting)
  4. sockbot /path/to/config.json (or sockbot /path/to/config.yml

The local install method:

  1. In a directory you want to install, run npm init and answer the prompts
  2. npm install sockbot
  3. For any plugins you want to use, npm install [plugin]
  4. Create a config.json or config.yml
  5. node_modules/.bin/sockbot config.yml

Protip: When using the local install method, you can use a module like pm2 to persist the instance and keep track of logs.
