This is a version of GitHub's Campfire bot, hubot. He's pretty really cool.

You'll probably never have to hack on this repo directly. Instead this repo provides a library that's distributed by npm that you simply require in your project.

Getting Your Own

Make sure you have node.js and npm installed.

Download the latest version of hubot.

Then follow the instructions in the README in the hubot directory.


Hubot ships with Campfire and Shell adapters. A number of third-party adapters exist which you can install with npm and then use that with your hubot.

Creating an Adapter

Creating an adapter for hubot is very simple. So simple infact hubot himself has written his own adapters.

  1. Start a project for the npm package
  2. Add hubot as a dependency to your package.json file
  3. Add your main adapter file as the main file in package.json

Below is an example of requiring hubot to extend Adapter and exporting a use function that will be used to load your adapter when used.

Robot   = require("hubot").robot()
Adapter = require("hubot").adapter()

class MyAdapter extends Adapter
  # You'll want to override the various methods see existing adapters
  # ...

exports.use = (robot) ->
  new MyAdapter robot


Hubot ships with a number of default scripts, but there's a growing number of extras in the hubot-scripts repository. hubot-scripts is a way to share scripts with the entire community.

Check out the README for more help on installing individual scripts.

Local Testing

Install all of the required dependencies by running npm install.

It's easy to test scripts locally with an interactive shell:

% export PATH="node_modules/.bin:$PATH"
% bin/hubot

... and to run tests:

% make test
