Overview:

Misty is an asynchronous and multiprocessing IRC Bot that aims to be:

  • Easily extendable with user based modules called Isles.
  • Powerful message distribution resembling Django’s URL dispatcher aka Lighthouse.
  • Quick, Friendly, and as non IRC Botty as possible.

Misty was inspired by Phenny,
and DjangoBot.

Coming Soon:

  • Searching via Django.
  • Join multiple channels.
  • More Core Isles.

Requirements:

  • Twisted
  • Misty has only been tested on OSX 10.6 and python 2.6

Installation:

  1. Clone repo in desired directory.
  2. Duplicate and rename Misty/settings.py to settings_local.py
  3. Change Misty/settings_local.py to match your IRC server.
  4. Type python Misty/misty_core.py in cmd line to start Misty.

Extending:

  1. Make a IsleName.py in the directory you set with PATH_TO_ISLES in Misty/settings.py
  2. Make sure the IsleName.py has execute permission.
  3. Make sure IsleName.py has #!/usr/bin/env python
  4. Edit Misty/lighthouse.py to include your new Isle.
  5. If Misty is running, reload the list of Isles with {nickname}:reload in IRC
