Purpose

To create an IRC bot that will publish Google Code changes to an IRC channel. Eventually we want to support queries and actions as well.

Additionally there is a log view web server included, log-view.py. You can see an example of this server at http://irclogs.velvetcache.org

Roadmap

  • Basic feed based IRC bot - DONE
  • Multiple project support with YAML & Multiprocessing - DONE
  • Daemon monitoring, auditing & dynamic loading. - STARTED
  • IRC logging - DONE
  • Query interaction. - STARTED

Requirements

If you are going to use the log viewer you'll also need:

Usage

  • Create a bot yaml file in ./bots/
  • Run googlecode-irc-bot.py
  • Enjoy your bot
  • To view IRC logs, run log-view.py and visit http://localhost:8080/

Configuration

project:
  name: 'example' // Name of your bot, used internally
  bot:
    name: 'example-gc-bot'       // The IRC handle of your bot
    channel: '#example'          // The IRC channel to join
    server: 'chat.freenode.net'  // The IRC server
    port: 6667                   // The IRC port
  feeds:
    issues: 600      // Refresh issues feed interval (in seconds)
    downloads: 600   // Refresh downloads feed interval (in seconds)
    wiki: 600        // Refresh wiki changes feed interval (in seconds)
  issues:
    username: example@gmail.com  // Google login for access to issues API
    password: example
  logging: True   // Log all interactions on the channel to a file
  privignore:  // All users in this list will be ignored by the bot
  - ChanServ   // ChanServ can get into a loop if it asks your bot something
  - NickServ
  - jmhobbs    // Nobody listens to me anyway...
  vcs: svn   // svn, hg, git...

Debugging

Having problems? You can tail the log, or you can pass -debug to the script to add stdout logging of the Twisted framework.

$ python googlecode-irc-bot.py -debug
