StackIRC

StackIRC is a small Python application that posts questions from Stack Exchange sites to IRC channels.

Installation

There are two sets of instructions for installing StackIRC - one for Ubuntu 12.04+ users and one for every other platform.

  • Ubuntu Users:

    Open a terminal and run the following commands:

      sudo apt-add-repository ppa:george-edison55/george-edison
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install python-stackirc
    
  • Other Platforms:

    StackIRC depends on the following Python packages:

    After installing the dependencies, you will need to download and extract the latest archive from this page. cd into the directory you extracted and run the following command:

      python setup.py install
    

    Note: on Unix platforms you will need to prefix the command with sudo.

I have tested StackIRC only on Python 2.7.

Usage

The application can be started with the 'stackirc' command:

stackirc

The first time this command is run, a configuration file will be generated and placed in your home directory (~/.stackirc/config.py). You will need to open the file and follow the instructions inside to continue setting up the application.

Once complete, you can run the stackirc command once again to start the server.
