GitBot is a Ruby IRC bot that provides a builtin GitHub webhook server.
You can install GitBot from RubyGems by typing:
gem install gitbot
Note that GitBot uses the Cinch IRC framework, which requires Ruby 1.9.1 or newer.
First you must make a
config.ymlfile so that GitBot knows where it should connect to. You can make a copy of the
config.yml.examplefile and use that as a basis.
After that just run
gitbotin the directory where the config file is located. This will start the bot and its built-in webhook server. Alternatively, you can specify a different location for the config file with
You can now add a webhook to a GitHub project. Use the following url:
http://yourserver.com:5651/github. You can specify a different port in the config file if you want.
Now do some commits and see the commit messages appearing on the IRC channel.
