Plowbot is a minimalist jabber bot for plowshare. Once launched, it just
waits for links and downloads them using plowshare.

== Dependencies ==

python-jabberbot, pyxdg (and plowshare, obviously). The code is written
for python2 but python3 should be fine as soon as all the dependencies
will support it.

== Configuration ==

The first time you launch it, it will ask for credentials to be configured
with. Make sure the account you created for your bot has accepted an
account to be controlled from in his "friends".

== Known bugs ==

plowshare does not break recaptcha, and asks the user to break them. This
is not supported by plowbot (for now). Don't use these sites (see
https://code.google.com/p/plowshare/wiki/Readme), it will make the bot
freeze. No fix is planned for that, but if you want to submit a patch, you
are welcome.

== Starting the bot at boot ==

If you want to start the bot at boot with an init script, you can have a
look at the archlinux package [1], which features such a script.

== Submitting a patch ==

The bot fits my (limited) use as it is, but I'd be glad to take any patch.
Just send me pull requests.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
