LifeBot is a big step for us, but also for you. It is now very simple to create a python IRC bot and also to learn programming by doing it. LifeBot explains very well how the code works, etc.
You'll just need about 2 minutes in order to have a global vision on the bot's way to work, and so to be able to custom it, almost to infinity.
You will need... a computer and internet. Oh, and Python, you can download it by clicking here (if you've got Linux, Python is already installed). Then you'll just have to download LifeBot!
Once the bot downloaded, don't open it ! Just right click the file and edit it (click on "Edit with IDLE" under Windows).
Then, you'll have settings to set your bot's name, the IRC chans it will be on, etc. Edit them as you wish.
Scroll down until you see the bot's commands (about 1/3 of the scrollbar), don't mind about what's before first command if you don't have any programming knowledge.
Follow the explanations located within the file. Don't forget to save (ctrl+s). Once these steps done, just double click the file to run the bot (under Windows) or open a shell and type "python bot_path" (under Linux)!
With LifeBot, you can for example make a bot allowing an easier chan use, by making commands that make the bot execute certain actions (answer to questions, directly giving links on a channel...), you can also use it for administrative functions in the channel (bans, kicks, status giving...), that bot has almost no limit!
Warning anyway, the use of this bot to flood (for example, automatic message every 10 seconds by sending multiple bots) is certainly not appreciated. If you do it, an operator of the IRC network your bot is on may ban you from the whole of it! By using this bot, you are responsible of the use you make of it. That's not a spam bot, neither a flood bot, but you can have fun with it!
LifeBot is an easily programmable bot without programming knowledge needed but IRC knowledge is necessary because the bot has specific commands to it.
If you don't understand anything to IRC commands (just like Goofy, uh?), you can use HelloBot, another IRC bot with commands to send text, join an leave IRC channels.
This bot is under CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 license, in case of re-distribution, you must quote the source by giving the download link of the original version of LifeBot. Selling this bot is prohibited.
