Configuring

Once you've installed all the requirments, you will need to configure your bot.

cp config-example.js config.js
vi config.js
Setting Wat?
process.env.bot_send_to The jabber account your bot will send messages to. (i.e. your gtalk account)
process.env.bot_listen_port The port your bot will listen on.
process.env.bot_jid The jabber account your bot will log in as in order to send debug messages.
process.env.bot_password The password for your bot's jabber account.
process.env.bot_host The jabber host. Default: talk.google.com
process.env.bot_port The jabber host port. Default: 5222

Note: you'll need to create a jabber account somewhere so this will all work. If you don't have your own domain name, using Gmail is always an option. Once you've created your bot's account, you'll need to log in as your bot via a chat client and invite your primary account as a friend.
