Heroku

You can also host your Bot for free on Heroku. It is ready to deploy.

git push heroku master
heroku ps:scale worker=1
heroku ps
heroku logs

Commands

Right now, !help, !echo, !gif, !image, !youtube and !wiki are the only available commands.

It's super easy to add your own commands! Just create a python file in the plugins directory with an on_message function that returns a string.

Integrations

Besides commands you can also integrate other types of plugins that just listen for a specific message in the SQS queue.

See per example the stackdriver-reader plugin that wait for Stackdriver to send policy alerts to a SNS topic which is subscribed by the SQS queue used by this daemon.
