Simple IRC bot that helps software projects. Requires Go 1.13 or later.
go get -u mvdan.cc/gibot
It will read a config file from
config.json by default. See the
example config that the F-Droid project uses, for
server are self-explanatory - it configures how the
bot will connect to IRC.
chans are the channels that the bot will join and listen for messages
feeds are the channels that the bot will post activity feed items on,
such as when a new issue is created.
feeds channels which are not
chans will be joined temporarily for posting.
repos are the repos that the bot will use. The
token has to
be populated with your Gitlab API token.
For each of the repos, its feed will be posted to the channels in
feeds. On top of that, the bot will listen for messages mentioning
issues, pull requests and commits and it will link them.
For example, in the example config, the gitlab setup for F-Droid will result in the following behaviour:
fdroidclient#10will make the bot link the issue number 10 on fdroidclient
fdroidserver!20will make the bot link the merge request number 20 on fdroidclient
abcdef12345678and any valid commit hash at least 8 characters in length will make the bot link the commit (it will try all the repos and return the first result)
Below is a sample systemd service file to run it as a daemon. The automatic restarts will take care of failures to reconnect and crashes, if there are any.
