I like to announce the release of BOTLIB version 18 into the Public Domain.
BOTLIB #18 - Framework to program bots - http://botlib.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ #ggz #evrm #dooddoorgif
BOTLIB is a python3 framework to use if you want to program IRC or XMPP bots.
CLI, IRC and XMPP bots. Object class - save/load to/from a JSON file. ReST server - serve saved object’s over HTTP. RSS fetcher - echo rss feeds to IRC channels. UDP server - udp to bot to IRC channel. Watcher server - run tail -f and have output send to IRC channel. Email scanning - scan mbox format to searchable BOTLIB objects. JSON backend - objects are stored as json string in files on the fs. Db - iteration over stored objects. Timestamp - time based filenames gives logging capabilities Future - future sensors should provide entry to the logger.
Set export PYTHONPATH=”.” if the bot cannot be found by the python interpreter. Set export PYTHONIOENCODING=”utf-8” if your shell has problems with handling utf-8 strings. For the XMPP server use a ~/.sleekpass file with the password in it
