AutoBot

teamcity.codebetter AutoBot build status

Introduction

AutoBot is inspired by GitHub's splendid HUBOT and a childhood love of Transformers, AutoBot however is a chat bot for the Windows crew.

  • The core bot engine is written in C# (.NET 4), his functionality and extensibility is provided by the addition of PowerShell 2.0 script modules which are dynamically loaded and executed at runtime.
  • AutoBot currently chats only with the XMPP powered awesomeness that is HipChat using the jabber-net library

WARNING: AutoBot is an infant and has some obvious (and other not so obvious) restrictions/issues/flaws, please take a look at AutoBot's current issues before continuing.
