cinchize

Cinchize scope is to easily get a daemonized irc-bot up and running using plugins where there shouldn't be any need to actually write code.

It should be noted that the program is currently considered to be in beta and may change both in how it's accessed and how the config logs is formed.

Installation

gem install cinchize

Usage

Basic

cinchize --start network

The config file can either be in the current working directory or in /etc and should be called cinchize.yml. Use the flag -s to tell cinchize to look for the config file at /etc/cinchize.yml.

cinchize -s --start network

To daemonize, use -d

cinchize -d --start network

Network is the name you call the a server config in the servers part of the config file, i.e. “freenode”, “super_duper_amazing_network”, “quakenet” or similar.

–start, –restart, –stop and –status assumes that “cinchize.yml” is located in the current working directory unless -s is used, then we assume that it's located in “/etc/cinchize.yml” as stated above.

Config-file

All config options to each server object is optional, except for the channels and plugins. All valid config options for a Cinch bot should work.

options:
  log_output: true
  dir_mode: normal
  dir: "/path/to/pid/dir"
servers:
  freenode:
    server: irc.freenode.net
    port: 6667
    nick: CinchizeBot
    channels:
      - "#cinchbots"
    plugins:
      - 
        class: "Cinch::Plugins::SomePlugin"
        options:
          option: value
      -
        class: "Cinch::Plugins::AnotherPlugin"

Options explained

dir: the save path, absolute or relative to either /var/run or to the current working directory

dir_mode: “system” to work from /var/run and “normal”, to work from current working directory or from an absolute path

log_output: writes STDERR and STDOUT to a logfile in the same dir as the pid-file
