This page is to serve as a compilation of Supybot resources. Since the Supybot project is currently missing a website, and there's no telling when it will be reborn, we hope this page will serve as a temporary repository of helpful information for Supybot users.
Another good place to get help is on the #supybot channel on irc.freenode.net - stop by any time!
- There is documentation available in the docs directory of the supybot source tree. Follow that link, or grab the latest source code snapshot from the supybot git repository.
- The old plugin documentation that used to be hosted on the supybot webspace has been taken down for being too outdated. It is still useful, though, and has been asked for by many. Here are some links to a copy hosted on archive.org:
- Here's the latest archived version of the supybot.com website.
- There's a supybot user manual called supybook.
- The Supybot Install Guide is a detailed walkthrough for installing Supybot.
- The page Using Gribble on Sourceforge provides some generally useful information for using a configured supybot. (gribble is the #sourceforge supybot)
- The Supybot-fr wiki is a Supybot documentation hub in French.
- http://supybot.fr.cr/doc/ is the Limnoria documentation, but covers many of Supybot's stock plugins and conventions.
- A unofficial Supybot website.
There is a nice collection of plugins available in the stock supybot distribution, but there are many more sprinkled all over the web. Some links are listed below.

If you know of good plugins or other resources not listed above, please let us know.
Sometimes there's just no substitute to having a web interface to some functions of the bot. The following is a list of available web interfaces we know about:
- The gribblewebsite repository in gribble git. See it in action here. Main attraction is the factoids db display. (Note that it is compatible with the modified factoids in the gribble git, not with the stock factoids in the supybot repo).
- Another factoids display page. See it in action here.
- The Ubottu project (ubuntu irc bot) also has a web interface. Code is here and you can see it in action here. Note that ubottu uses a heavily modified factoids plugin as well, so their stuff won't work with stock factoids plugin.
Resources, documentation, and examples on supybot internals. If you are just starting out and are looking for introductory material, first read the PLUGIN_TUTORIAL.rst document in the docs directory of the supybot source distribution. There are a number of other good docs in there as well, that you should strongly consider reading. :)
- Object documentation
- Topic documentation
