Supybot Resources

From gribble

Jump to: navigation, search

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!

If you know of good plugins or other resources not listed above, please let us know.

Web Interface

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.

Other tools

Plugin Coding

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. :)
