sending raw xml from within chatbot

Wrote a new ChatBot plugin today I thought I’d like to share with you. It enables you to send raw xml data with the help of a spool directory. Chatbot watches this directory. If it finds a file in there it sends its content accross the wire. Pretty handy for lots of stuff like interfacing with system monitors and so on.

Thanks to mawis who inspired me with this by having added sth. similar to jabberd14.

    ChatBot is hosted at JabberStudio.

    Peter annouced that JabberStudio will close March 26th. Is ChatBot your project? If so, you should probably move it to some other place.

    Cool plugin.

    Hi, I know JabberStudio will be shut down soon. ChatBot is not my project. As it seems it’s unmaintained for a long time now so I’m afraid it might disappear together with JabberStudio. If this really should happen I’ll make it available here.

    Hi Steve,
    it seems, that most stuff on jabberstudio isn´t working or getting updates anymore. i´m on the search for a chatplugin and a chatbot for wordpress 2.2.2 … i would even be satisfied with some old alice or whatever. i saw that you use wp too, so i thought you might be some help to me …. ?? please! 😀

    Sorry kaiser, guess I can’t be much of a help there. I don’t know what ‘alice’ is.

    Hi Steve, ‘alice’ is one of the older chatbots. the meaning of chat is in this case talking with a real person. alice is one with a plain textfile and learing from talking. she´s able to learn nearly every language (that´s what i read) and makes some nice conversion.

    […] So what’s new? * Some minor bug fixes (don’t crash on ‘join_channel’ command, fixed timers) * Crash handler for registered callbacks of plugins (plugins can’t crash ChatBot anymore) * New ‘plugin’ plugin that allows you to hot-deploy plugins (loading plugins whithout restarting) and enables hot code replacement (reload plugins if file changed) * A ‘feedreader’ plugin that, well you guessed it, allows to subscribe to feeds * An ‘ejabberdctl’ plugin to administrate ejabberd nodes from within chatbot (use with care!) * A ’spool’ plugin that reads raw xml from a spool and sends it accross the wire (inspired by jabberd14’s spool feature) * even more plugins […]
