Help build our IRC bot
After you have joined us on IRC and after you have sufficient knowledge of Python, you can help extend the functionality of our IRC bot.
IRC bots are helpful and fun robots that can:
- keep IRC channels ‘alive’ when few users are present,
- help channel users to information about the channel or from the Web,
- provide witty remarks…
Decide on some new feature that you would like the IRC bot to have that would benefit users on the channel. Preferrably discuss this with your mentors.
Then clone the botko repository and thoroughly study the existing code.
Add decided-upon functionality (write the required new code or source modifications) to your local copy and test that it works properly. Finally, submit a pull request to merge your modifications upstream.
