hedwig

hedwig is a small XMPP bot written in C.

It understands the following commands:

  • !exec : run any program via popen()
  • !cmd : run defined commands
  • !quit : quit hedwig

Only people in the roster are allowed to run commands. All messages to hedwig will be printed out on stdio.

The !exec option is disabled by default for security reasons. To enable it start hedwig with -e.

!cmd is used to extend the bot. It runs files that have the executable bit set and are in a certain directory. By default that is the current working directory, but you can define it with -d.

Example

cd ~/hedwigs-plugins
echo "echo 'hello harry'" > greet
echo "ls" > list-commands
chmod u+x greet list-commands
hedwig -j hedwig@hogwarts.co.uk -p ooohooh -d ~/hedwigs-plugins

Building

qmake
make
./hedwig -j hedwig@hogwarts.co.uk -p ooohooh
