All configuration is done in Ruby. The context is a Firetower::Sesson object. You can add handlers for events:
receive do |session, event| ... end
Or enable plugins:
A simple bot
Drop this in ~/.firetower/firetower.conf for a simple (and VERY UNSAFE!) demo of a Campfire bot which will eval arbitrary Ruby code whenever someone prefaces a message with “!eval”:
receive do |session, event| if event['type'] == 'TextMessage' && event['body'] =~ /^!eval (.*)$/ event.room.account.paste!(event.room.name, "Eval result:\n" + eval($1).to_s) end end
The event hooks are HookR events, so any number of handlers can be stacked on a given event. And more advanced usage are possible; for instance, you can attach a Listener object to receive all types of events. In fact, this last is how plugins are implemented.
If you want to write your own Firetower plugins, you should create a gem that contains a path something like this:
Firetower will load the init_v1.rb file on startup. Typically, a plugin will define a Firetower::Session::Listener class (or more than one) in the Firetower::Plugins namespace:
module Firetower module Plugins class MyAwesomePlugin < Firetower::Session::Listener def startup(session) # Some one-time startup code... end def receive(session, event) # Some event-handling code... end end end end
Users can then enable your plugin by installing your gem and adding a line line to their firetower.conf:
Not yet implemented:
Join/leave rooms when subscribing/unsubscribing
Fire all defined hooks, including :shutdown and :leave
