PicartoChatBot (FezBot)

####An extendable bot for your Picarto Chat


This is an extendable bot for Picarto.TV chats. By itself it does nothing, that's where Plugins come in handy. Drop plugin files into the /plugins directory, load them from the bot console (or by restarting completely) and enjoy it's functionality.


  • Lightweight: Being a NodeJS app makes it easily deployable everywhere! Even on low power servers
  • Console commands allow you to administrate the bot easily
  • Automatic login to Picarto's network: Just specify a channel and a username
  • Web facing front allowing you to display information like the requests from the default requests plugin using the OBS Browser Source plugin.
  • Plugin API: The bot doesn't really do anything by itself, you install Plugins for functionality. The following plugins come pre-installed:
    • roll_dice.pbot.js A dice rolling script that allows to roll any number of dice
    • greetings.pbot.js Make the bot greet people or say goodbye
    • message_output.pbot.js Print messages from chat to your output
    • request_q.pbot.js A queue plugin for requests or commissions
    • logger.pbot.js A plugin that logs the chat and makes the logs available through the integrated WebServer
    • perm_man.pbot.js Manage the integrated Permissions System
    • timeout_man.pbot.js Manage timeouts easily!

##For Developers Want to write your own Plugin for the bot? That's great! Easiest is to check existing plugins on how they are written, but you can also check the Wiki of this repository, it should give all the information you should need. I'll also provide a plugin template which you can use. Make sure that your plugin has the file extension .pbot.js.
