As described on Errbot website:

Errbot is a chatbot, a daemon that connects to your favorite chat service
and brings your tools into the conversation.

It handles sending messages to correct rooms/person, receiving messages,
calling your command routines on matching commands, etc. These command routines
are added by writing plugins, which are collected and loaded by Errbot when it
is ran.
