JSBot is an IRC bot library written in Node JS.

With features like multiple server support and being 'pretty good, I guess,' JSBot is designed to be the IRC bot library of the future! For an example of a large project which uses JSBot, take a look at DepressionBot.

To get started with JSBot, take a look at the 'run.js' example provided with the code, then head on over to the online documentation.


0.3 I guess

  • Fixed an edge case with the IRC line tokenisation /potentially/ causing events to be parsed twice
  • Isolated all core channel/nick list logic in JOIN/PART/KICK/QUIT/NICK handlers
  • Removed useless timeout in 004 handler, switched it to handle 001 instead
  • Removed a duplicate send() call for IDENTIFY
  • Semantically reorganised source code
  • Various other improvements
