Henzell ------- Henzell is the announcement and stats IRC bot for ##crawl on Freenode IRC. Dependencies ------------ Henzell wants a slew of Perl modules for IRC, YAML parsing, DB connectivity, etc.; it will usually produce a somewhat relevant error message when it cannot find a module it wants. If you want to use Henzell with a non-DGL crawl, build it with at least these flags: make EXTERNAL_DEFINES="-DDGL_MILESTONES -DDGL_WHEREIS -DDGL_EXTENDED_LOGFILES" Configuring Henzell ------------------- Henzell can do several things based on how it's configured: 1. Make Crawl game announcements based on events in any number of Crawl logfiles and milestones files (if announce=1 and announce_channel is not empty). 2. Store new game events from any number of logfiles and milestone files into a PostgreSQL database (if sql_store=1). 3. Answer queries for games and milestones (if sql_queries=1). You configure Henzell by supplying an rc/henzell.rc in the *directory from which you run Henzell*. You can alternatively specify the rc filename as a command-line option with: perl henzell.pl --rc=some/path/to/myweirdrc Some sample henzell rc files are included in this repository (henzell.rc.cao, henzell.rc.sequell, henzell.rc.ircnet). Henzell for announcements ------------------------- If you're running a Crawl server and want Henzell to make announcements, edit def.logs and def.stones and add entries for your Crawl logfiles and milestone files. Enable announcements (announce=1 and announce_channel=##crawl) in your henzell.rc. Also choose a unique abbreviation for your server. For instance, crawl.akrasiac.org is abbreviated as cao, and this must be set both in henzell.rc and in def.logs/def.stones to identify local logs: In def.logs: [local:cao] /home/crawl/chroot/var/games/crawl04/saves/logfile In henzell.rc: bot_nick = NotTheRealHenzell host = cao announce = 1 announce_channel = ##crawl This unique abbreviation is quite important if you're using sql_store=1. Henzell for SQL queries ----------------------- This is more complicated than a simple announcement bot: 1. Install PostgreSQL, create a database 'henzell' and a user 'henzell', and give the user access to the database with password 'henzell'. 2. In the 'henzell' database, install the PostgreSQL citext and orafce extensions by running (as an admin user): CREATE EXTENSION citext; CREATE EXTENSION orafce; citext is available as part of Postgres contrib; orafce is available at: http://orafce.projects.postgresql.org/ Henzell needs the CITEXT extension for case-insensitive comparison and grouping and the orafce extension for the median aggregate function. 2. Set up the database schema as: Generate the schema: perl schema-gen.pl Create the tables: psql -U henzell henzell < henzell.sql 3. Make sure def.logs and def.stones are set up correctly. 4. Run Henzell with an rc that includes: sql_store = 1 sql_queries = 1 commands_file = commands/commands-sequell.txt If you want the bot to do both announcements and SQL queries, you must merge the commands files into one big list of commands.
