factoid bot for irc channels


To build and test Javabot, you'll need to do a few things.

  1. Install MongoDB. For Fedora, you can install it with

       sudo yum install mongodb-server

    On OS X, you can use

       brew install mongo

    If you're using Docker, you can run a Docker image for MongoDB:

       docker pull mongo

    (Note that if you're on Windows, you may need to add network translation to handle port 27017; see images/nat .png for how this would look in VirtualBox.)

  2. Copy javabot-sample.properties to javabot.properties and update any properties as needed. If you want to run the web application as well, copy javabot-sample.yml to javabot.yml and adjust as necessary.

  3. Start mongodb; one example command, which will locate the data files in the current directory, is this:

    mongod --noauth --dbpath .

In Docker, you'd use:

    docker run -d -p 27017:27017 --name mongodb mongo
  1. Build and test.


If you use IDEA, make sure you have "Use plugin registry" enabled in your Maven configuration.

Note also that IDEA may not pick up the generated java source as part of the build path; if Sofia does not resolve after running mvn compile at least once, then open up the javabot.iml file and add <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/main/java" isTestSource="false" /> under the <content> XML node. <content> should look like this:

<content url="file://$MODULE_DIR$">
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/main/kotlin" isTestSource="false" />
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/main/java" isTestSource="false" />
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/main/resources" type="java-resource" />
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/test/kotlin" isTestSource="true" />
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/test/resources" type="java-test-resource" />
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/main" isTestSource="false" />
  <excludeFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/target" />

To test the web application aspects, you need to copy the javabot-sample.yml to javabot.yml; this will put the web container on port 8081 by default.
