Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::GitHub - GitHub-related modules for
IRC bots running Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable
A set of modules for Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable bots, providing useful
GitHub-related functionality.
If your team use GitHub and colloborate on IRC, these may well be of
interest to you. They're already in use on the Dancer project's IRC
channel, and internally at my workplace, UK2.
Most communication with GitHub uses Net::GitHub::V2, and can use
authentication with an API key for private repositories.
The following modules are included - see the documentation for each for
more details on how to use them.
Provide quick URLs to view issues/pull requests etc when someone
mentions one - for example:
<user> Go have a look at Issue 42
<bot1> Issue 42 (It doesn't work)
<user> I fixed that in 5fcbb01
<bot1> Commit 5fcbb01 (Retarded logic fail.) -
You can set a default project per-channel, so the above examples
will look at whatever project is set as default for the channel the
message was in.
You can also explicitly tell it to look at any other GitHub project:
<user> 5fcbb01 @ bigpresh/Bot-BasicBot-Pluggable-Module-GitHub
<bot1> Commit 5fcbb01 (Retarded logic fail.) -
Monitor pull requests for GitHub projects.
<@bigpresh> !pr
< sophie> Open pull requests for sukria/Dancer : 8 pull requests open
(felixdo:3, perlpilot:1, jamhed:1, dams:1, ambs:1, JTimothyKing:1)
Announces issues raised/closed for each channel's default project.
Periodically checks on issues for each project, and reports changes,
for example:
< sophie> Issues closed : 667 (YAML::XS for Session::YAML) by jamhed :
Loading modules
See the Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable documentation for how to load these
modules into your bot.
Do not load this module directly; load the modules named above
individually, to get just the functionality you require.
This module is intended only to provide a base for the other modules,
including shared functionality and common documentation.
Configuring the default project repo
The modules above need to know what GitHub project repositories they should
refer to.
The projects are configured with the `!setgithubprojects` command in
a private message to the bot.
You'll need to be authenticated to the bot in order to set the project
(see the auth module).
You set the project with:
!setgithubprojects #channel user/projectname1 user/projectname2 ...
The default project repo for each channel is always the first one you set.
The user/projectname is mapped to `projectname` owned by `user` on GitHub
(in other words, <>).
Projects can also be added and removed one by one using
`!addgithubproject` and `!deletegithubproject` as follows:
!addgithubproject #channel user/projectname3
!deletegithubproject #channel user/projectname3
If the project is a private repository which requires authentication, you
can also tell the bot what user and token it should use to authenticate:
!setauthforproject #channel user/privateproject someuser:githubtokenhere
You can generate/find an API token for your GitHub account at
If you have many projects that you want to use the same auth credentials,
you can use the `!setdefaultauth` command to set a default auth to use
for all projects that don't have a specific auth set.
!setdefaultauth user:githubtokenhere
