Python IRC Bot in the Works

*** Update ***: Main page for bot here

I am currently writing a small, fast, small-footprint IRC bot in Python. More details as I finish the bot. The functions created so far:

  • Help (Displays Help)
  • Echo (Echo back a message)
  • Say (Send a message to a channel)
  • Spam (Send a message to a channel a specified amount of times)
  • Join (Join a channel)
  • Part (Part a channel)
  • Authorization (username+password)
  • Deauthorization
  • User lookup
  • Raw (Use raw IRC commands)
  • Uptime (Display uptime)
  • Math (Do math functions with Yacas)

Planned functions:

  • Encrypted passwords
  • Data storage, either in a text file or a MySQL DB
  • Channel mode control

This bot is not meant to be a complex bot, it is intended to be a fast, light bot that can be easily reprogrammed.

    @killerkan
    No idea. There is a working version at irc://irc.mattventura.net/#bots that you can check out. Try ‘MVpybot: help’ for some help. Also, if you want to look at the code, you can look at http://theoks.net/viewvc/mvpybot/ or download it at http://theoks.net/viewvc/mvpybot/?view=tar. Configure on options.py and put users in ‘users’ and then run ./newbot.py.
