Short Description
A sane bot for most chat applications, written in modern Perl
Full Description


A fully featured chat bot written in modern Perl and tears. This repository is a deploy-ready image, allowing one to provide a configuration and immediately have a bot ready to use.

The ideal usage of this image is as follows. You may also alter this to use mounted volumes to create something self-contained.

  • Create a local directory where you can host your config, log files, and database on the local filesystem
  • Create yourdirectory/whatbot.conf using whatbot.conf-example as an example. The configuration is pure JSON
    • Set to "/whatbot/data"
    • Set .database.database to "/whatbot/data/whatbot.db"
    • See your given IO module for configuration, if you aren't using IRC.
  • Start the container by mounting your local config directory to /whatbot/data:
    docker run -v /path/to/your/directory:/whatbot/data -it nmelnick/whatbot

Whatbot will then start, create the local SQLite database, and connect to your configured connections.
