These are a collection of community scripts for Hubot, a chat bot for your company.


Once you have Hubot installed, you can drop new scripts from this repository right into your generated Hubot installation. Just put them in scripts, add the new scripts to the hubot-scripts.json file.

Any third-party dependencies for scripts need adding your your package.json otherwise a lot of errors will be thrown during the start up of your hubot.

Restart your robot, and you're good to go.

All the scripts in this repository are located in src/scripts.


Want to write your own Hubot script? The best way is to take a look at an existing script and see how things are set up. Hubot scripts are written in CoffeeScript, a higher-level implementation of JavaScript.

You'll also want to add tests for your script; no one likes untested code. It makes Hubot sad.

Additionally, it's extremely helpful to add TomDoc to the top of each file. (Check out an example). We'll pull out the commands from those lines and display them in the generic, robot-wide hubot help command.

Please note we're no longer including external dependencies in the package.json, so should you wish to include them please include the package name and required version in the TomDoc comments at the top of your script.
