Robut

The friendly plugin-enabled HipChat bot.

This is a fork of github.com/justinweiss/robut – the plan is to add a few of github.com/jschauma/jbot’s capabilities.

For details about usage and the base plugins, please see Justin's original page: github.com/justinweiss/robut

Changes in this fork

I took the liberty of making a few minor changes in this fork. Most notably, this bot responds to commands preceded by a question mark rather than by addressing the bot via the @-notation.

That is, in this bot, you'd use

?help

rather than

@botname help

Changes in default plugins

Robut::Plugin::Calc

a simple calculator

Same idea as in the original, different implementation. In particular, this plugin shells out to bc(1), which allows it to perform a few more complex calculations (ie pretty much anything you can do with bc(1)).

?calc 1+1                    # => 2
?calc ibase=2; 1001010101    # => 597
?calc obase=16; 1024+123456  # => 1E640
?calc sqrt(99)               # => 9.94987437106619954734
?calc 4*a(1)                 # => 3.14159265358979323844
Robut::Plugin::GoogleImages

does a google image search for a query

Instead of returning the first image, this invocation returns randomly one of the first 10 images.
