PircBot' (pronounced "PircBot prime") is a framework for writing IRC bots in Java. This is a fork of's PircBot (version 1.5.0) that adds the following features:

  • SSL support
  • The ConfigurablePircBot class, allowing IRC bots to be configured easily
  • A build system using Apache Ant and Apache Ivy
  • Other minor improvements


PircBot' can be installed by typing:

$ ant

This makes the PircBot' library available to projects that depend on it through Ivy. The library can also be used via the resulting build/artifacts/pircbot.jar file.

For general documentation on using PircBot' once it's installed, see the PircBot website. See ReminderBot' for an example of how to use the new features provided by PircBot'.
