a small IRC bot for use with git hooks, cronjobs, scripts etc
To build sircbot you need a C compiler and GNU make. To build the lua module you need Lua 5.1, 5.2 or 5.3.
To compile sircbot run:
You can set various compile options in config.mk:
Running the server
start the server with:
sircbot -s SERVER -n NICK '#channel1' '#channel2'
It connects to server and joins given channels. When a channel is joined it creates a unix socket /var/run/sircbot/<#channel> which can connected to with sircbot-send.
To send to a connected channel use:
echo "$message" | sircbot-send '#channel1'
sircbot-send will send everything from stdin to given channel.
For every message that goes to the channel, sircbot will run all scripts in /etc/sircbot.d/<#channel>/ with sender, message and channel name as arguments.
Sending message with Lua
Example script which explains how to send a message with Lua
local sircbot = require('sircbot') local client = sircbot.connect('#channel') client:send("hello")
