IRC bot

An IRC bot named KOS-MOS has recently been created using the Eclipse Communication Framework project's Bot Framework. The bot sits in the Freenode IRC Eclipse channels and is intended to help make the lives of everyone in the channel a little easier by being able to access Bugzilla and provide helpful links that users often needs to go to such as the Eclipse platform's APIs.

For any questions, please contact rcjsuen on IRC.

Status

Due to hosting issues, the bot is currently not online 24/7. Bug 180585 is tracking this issue and we hope to resolve it as soon as possible.

Channels

KOS-MOS is set to autojoin the following channels on Freenode (irc.freenode.net):

  • #easyeclipse
  • #eclipse
  • #eclipse-de
  • #eclipse-dev
  • #eclipse-ecf
  • #eclipse-linux
  • #eclipse-soc

Available Commands

At the moment, the regular expression contained within the plug-in's plugin.xml is:

(~bug|~bug[0-9]*|~bug[0-9]*c[0-9]+|~manage|~log|~logs|~about|~paste|~pastebin|~tell .*|~snippet|~snippets|~javadoc|~api|~plugin|~bot|~wtp|~php|~svn|~news|~newsgroup|~cmd|~commands|~help)

To prepend a user's name to the message that the bot will output, use a syntax of ~tell name about item.

If a valid http connection can be made to Bugzilla, the bot will output the bug's summary into its message, otherwise, it will fall back to simply providing a link to the bug.

Below is a list of all possible commands at the moment. This page will be updated as often as possible.
