This project was a direct result of my desire to learn the Python language. My friend was running an IRC server, and had a desire for a bot to perform some basic tasks for the users.
It is built with a highly modular design to allow other developers to easily drop in a new Python module and have their code working right away. If this is interesting to you, please take a look at my implementation. I'm sure there are better ways (like I said, this was my first attempt!), but this seems to be working for now!
The bot performs some basic functionality:
- Uptime counter
- SQLite User Points
- Hacker News article posting
- Integrated help command
For these features and more, check out the bot source!
