Tōchō 盗聴 - a simple irc logging bot built on node-irc and nstore.
just another sketch in node.js. I usually can't be on the node.js channel all the time, so this bot is run off a cheap shell on one background process.
there's already the official logs of course, but nstore lets me potentially do a search for my favorite guys...etc
and of course, it's just plain good fun on weekend late nights to put some node goodies together.
adding a simple web delivery to a page so ideally tocho can just pass off what it hears and can be viewed real-time from a webpage. eventually to integrate the search into the webpage as well. I'm turning this guy into a Doraemon. If anyone else got some wacky idea of what tocho should do, join in the fun.
- node.js (duh!)
- use npm install node-irc
- nStore if you want to save the conversations to Tim Caswell's nStore instead of a plain vanilla text file.
- Socket.io if you want to configure the conversations to a webpage (and less.js for simple CSS beautification). Also to use express/fab or any good framework.
