EarwigBot Plugins

Additional IRC commands and bot tasks for EarwigBot. They are included separately due to being outside of most peoples' use cases, or because they require additional setup aside from the main bot. To install, place the command or task file in its respective subdirectory in the bot's working directory (the same one that contains its config file).

IRC Commands

  • AFC-related commands (afc_pending, afc_report, afc_status, afc_submissions): implements various services for Articles for creation. It has no dependencies, but afc_report requires the afc_statistics task plugin for parsing submissions. afc_submissions accepts a config option, "ignoreList", a list of page titles to skip; it will try to use afc_statistics's ignore list if none is defined.

  • geolocate: implements an IP geolocator using ipinfodb. Requires an API key stored in its config as "apiKey", which should be stored encrypted if that option is enabled.

  • git: allows the bot to carry out basic git maintenance functions, like pulling and checking out branches on repositories. A list of repo paths should be stored in its config as "repos". Has one dependency, GitPython, which can be installed with pip install GitPython.

  • lta_monitor: monitors for LTAs. No further information is available.

  • praise: adds a simple way for the bot respond to ad-hoc commands based on entries in praise's config (in the "praises" dictionary). Its original intention was to implement silly "easter eggs" praising certain users; for example, "!earwig" would make the bot say "Earwig is the bestest Python programmer ever!". This would be implemented by having an entry in "praises" with the key "earwig" and the value "Earwig is the bestest Python programmer ever!".

  • rc_monitor: monitors the recent changes feed for certain edits and reports them to a dedicated channel. The channel is stored under the "channel" key in the command's dictionary. Reportable edits match various heuristics, like urgent speedy taggings.

  • stars: gets the number of stargazers for (i.e., people starring) a given GitHub repository.

  • urbandictionary: looks up terms on Urban Dictionary. Separated from the main command list because these are often distasteful or unwanted.

  • weather: gives current weather information for a location from Weather Underground. Requires an API key stored in its config as "apiKey", which should be stored encrypted if that option is enabled.

  • welcome: automatically welcomes people who join a particular channel. Welcoming is restricted to web IRC users, i.e. users whose hostname starts with gateway/web/. In the command's config section, use channel names as keys and welcome messages as values; the string {nick} will be replaced by their nickname. The !welcome command can be used by bot admins to enable or disable welcomes in a particular channel.

Bot Tasks

  • afc_catdelink: delinks mainspace categories (or templates, if necessary) in declined AFC submissions.

  • afc_copyvios: checks newly-edited AFC submissions for copyright violations using the bot's built-in copyvio checking support. Takes multiple config values, including connection info for a MySQL database to store processed pages and a cache (disabled by default; usable by the web interface). A script to create the database is in tasks/schema/afc_copyvios.sql.

  • afc_dailycats: creates daily, monthly, and yearly categories for AFC.

  • afc_history: generates charts about AFC submissions over time, including number of pending submissions throughout the project's history as well as counts for individual reviewers. Takes multiple config values, including MySQL database info. A script to create the database is in tasks/schema/afc_history.sql.

  • afc_statistics: generates statistics for AFC on the current number of pending submissions and recently declined or accepted ones. Takes multiple config values, including MySQL database info. A script to create the database is in tasks/schema/afc_statistics.sql.

  • afc_undated: periodically clears Category:Undated AfC submissions.

  • blp_tag: adds |blp=yes to {{WPB}} or {{WPBS}} when it is used along with {{WP Biography}}.

  • drn_clerkbot: clerks the dispute resolution noticeboard, updating case statuses, building a chart, and notifying users. Takes multiple config values, including MySQL database info. A script to create the database is in tasks/schema/drn_clerkbot.sql.

  • infobox_station: replaces specific deprecated infoboxes following a template discussion.
