= rbot - The Ruby IRC bot
rbot is a ruby IRC bot. Think of him as a ruby bot framework with a highly
modular design based around plugins.
== rbot features
* Runtime configuration via irc chat
* User authentication and access levels for using different bot features
* Built in infobot-style keywords.
* Support for underlying fact database (infobot fact files), which can
be overridden or supplemented by runtime keyword controls
* Multi-language support - comes with english, dutch, german, french, italian
japanese, chinese and russian definitions so far - more translations welcome
* Powerful plugin architecture, comes with plugins for:
- DNS queries
- Babelfish translation
- Google searching
- Excuse generation
- Insult generation
- Karma
- Checking the weather
- Querying slashdot
- Doing Math
- Per-channel quote storage, searching and retrieval
- Reminders
- rot13 translation
- Check the spelling of a word
- Webserver Server: header examination
- RPG dice rolling
- larting people
- conversation stats
- more...
Thanks are owed to the infobot developers - several of rbot's features are
inspired by infobot and so are some of the default plugins. Thanks are also
owed to RADKade1, as rbot's quote plugin is a direct reimplementation of his
"quotesaq" - simply because it's a great quote interface.
Mainly, rbot's fun to play with, although the plugin architecture can be used
to write very useful modules
