UnGarage

UnGarage is a multifunction irc bot that read rss, twitter and allow to post on twitter.

Description

UnGarage is based on ii, a filesystem for irc. The original idea came from John-Henry by jaywalk but, except the reconnection loop, those two bots don't share any code in common.

UnGarage is a combination of rsstail, bti, grep, screen and some bash to glue everything. The "code" itself cannot really be released but a methodology on how to do a similar bot can be released (but since I'm lazy I won't do this right now, if you have any question don't hesitate to ping me (Bram) on irc).

What it does

  • reads RSS from the todo and other rss (link the rp one for #lqdn-rp)
  • reads twitter RSS on the research "laquadrature"
  • reads the friend timeline of UnGarage and filter it based of keywords to show only subject that interest us.
  • allows to post on twitter with the account UnGarage with the !twitter or !tweet command
  • uses twitter interface to "special" rt (and not manual rt) with the command !rt <tweet id>
  • "!rt last" to rt the last tweet that appeared on #laquadrature
  • since it's an ii, it can be modify or moved to other chans really easily

What we want to do

  • Nothing special right now, we think about merging every bots into one, maybe this one.
