irc#

Description#

IRC integration.

This plugin allows you to easily create IRC bots with custom logic that reacts to IRC events and interact with IRC sessions.

Configuration#

irc:
  # [Required]
  # List of servers/channels that the bot will
  # automatically connect/join. Format:
  #
  #   .. code-block:: yaml
  #
  #     servers:
  #       - server: irc.example.org
  #         port: 6697
  #         ssl: true
  #         ipv6: false
  #         username: foo
  #         password: bar
  #         nickname: testbot
  #         realname: Test Bot
  #
  #         # List of channels that the bot will automatically join
  #         channels:
  #           - #channel1
  #           - #channel2
  #           - #channel3
  servers:   # type=Sequence[dict]

  # [Optional]
  # How often the `RunnablePlugin.loop <https://docs.platypush.tech/platypush/plugins/.html#platypush.plugins.RunnablePlugin.loop>`_ function should be
  # executed (default: 15 seconds). *NOTE*: For back-compatibility
  # reasons, the `poll_seconds` argument is also supported, but it's
  # deprecated.
  # poll_interval: 15  # type=Optional[float]

  # [Optional]
  # How long we should wait for any running
  # threads/processes to stop before exiting (default: 5 seconds).
  # stop_timeout: 5  # type=Optional[float]

  # [Optional]
  # If set to True then the plugin will not monitor
  # for new events. This is useful if you want to run a plugin in
  # stateless mode and only leverage its actions, without triggering any
  # events. Defaults to False.
  # disable_monitor: False  # type=bool
