GorillaBot is an easily-extensible IRC bot written in Python.
Author: Molly White
Python version: 3.4+
Download code from the
master branch. Code in the
development or other branches is often
incomplete and nonfunctional.
The bot is available on PyPI, so it can be installed
pip install gorillabot or
Alternatively, install the bot from source:
python3 bot.pyfrom the source directory.
- Configure the bot when prompted. If you already have already configured the bot, you can use that configuration or create a new one.
- Once the bot has successfully connected, command the bot via IRC. A number of commands are marked as admin-only, and are only available to bot operators. All commands are outlined in the documentation.
GorillaBot generates its own plugin documentation. If you
add a plugin, please document it by writing usage notes in comments beginning with
#-. You can
see an example in the
link command. Note that
you do not need to specify if a command is admin-only or not; this is determined from the decorator.
