An feature rich irc bot capable of watching over channels and logging messages.
- Remember users and their messages using Sqlite3
- Listens to commands from both terminal and irc chat
- Print out logs of user messages
##Installing To set up your own developing environment to run the ircbot is easy! Clone the repo by typing this into git:
git clone https://github.com/brokenprogrammer/ircbot.git
Or simply just download the zip archive and extract it to where you want your workspace.
If you want the project to be in a separate directory go requires you to export your gopath variable. This is how i do it to set my Gopath to my ircbot directory which is in my home directory on Ubuntu:
When you have the bot in your directory you have to set up the config file to work your way, The configurations file is found under (yourpath/src/config/config.go)
Editing the config is pretty straight forward. Right now its only tested with sqlite3 as database driver. The two things you probably would like to change is "Channel" - The irc channel the bot connects to and "Nick" - The username the bot will connect with.
###Third Party Packages Sqlite3 for go
go get github.com/mattn/go-sqlite3 go install github.com/mattn/go-sqlite3
##Running ircbot Running the bot is really easy, just run it using go by entering the same directory as the main.go file (yourpath/src) then type:
go run main.go
###Console Commands Commands you can type into the terminal while the bot is running to make the bot do tasks:
Hello - Makes the bot print a hello message into the irc chat. Block Username - Replace Username with the user you wish to block, blocked users cannot use the chat commands. UnBlock Username - Replace Username with the user you wish to unblock. Extract Username - Extracts all messages stored for that user into a text file Example: user.txt.
###Chat Commands Commands users can type in the irc chat to make the bot do specific tasks:
!help - Displays the chat commands the bot reacts to. !status - Displays the time the bot has been running as well as the ammount of tracked users and messages. !eval - Evaluates a given statement, Example: !eval 5 + 5
