Hubot IRC Adapter

NOTICE: I did not created the IRC adapter, just created the NPM package. Did not intended to take over the adapter I just wanted to use the adapter sooner than later.


This is the IRC adapter for hubot.


  • Add hubot-irc as a dependency in your hubot's package.json
  • Install dependencies with npm install
  • Run hubot with bin/hubot -a irc

Note if running on Heroku

You will need to change the process type from app to web in the Procfile.


You will need to set some environment variables to use this adapter.


% heroku config:add HUBOT_IRC_NICK="hubot"

% heroku config:add HUBOT_IRC_ROOMS="#hubot,#hubot-irc"

% heroku config:add HUBOT_IRC_SERVER=""

Non-Heroku environment variables

% export HUBOT_IRC_NICK="hubot"

% export HUBOT_IRC_ROOMS="#hubot,#hubot-irc"

% export HUBOT_IRC_SERVER=""
