CloudBot is a simple, fast, expandable open-source Python IRC Bot!
There are currently four different branches of this repository, each with a different level of stability:
- gonzobot (stable): This branch contains everything in the master branch plus additional plugins added for Snoonet IRC. This branch is the currently maintained branch which will also contain many fixes for various bugs from the master branch.
- gonzobot-dev (unstable): This branch is based off of the gonzobot branch and includes new plugins that are not fully tested.
- master (stable (old)): This branch contains stable, tested code. This branch is based directly on the upstream master branch and is not currently maintained.
- python3.4 (unstable (old)): This is the outdated testing branch from the upstream repo.
New releases will be pushed from python3.4 to master whenever we have a stable version to release. These changes will be merged into gonzobot then deployed. This should happen on a fairly regular basis, so you'll never be too far behind the latest improvements.
Firstly, CloudBot will only run on Python 3.4 or higher. Because we use the asyncio module, you will not be able to use any other versions of Python.
To install CloudBot on *nix (linux, etc), see here

Before you run the bot, rename
config.json and edit it with your preferred settings. You can check if your JSON is valid using jsonlint.com!
Once you have installed the required dependencies and renamed the config file, you can run the bot! Make sure you are in the correct folder and run the following command:
python3.4 -m cloudbot
Note that you can also run the
cloudbot/__main__.py file directly, which will work from any directory.
Specify the path as /path/to/repository/cloudbot/main.py, where
cloudbot is inside the repository directory.
