botany over IRC
~eeeeeta wrote a script that lets you control your botany plant over IRC!
You may wish to back up your botany data before using this script. ~eeeeeta doesn't think it does anything bad, but they don't know how python works, so it's probably better to be safe. To do so, run:
$ cp -rv ~/.botany ~/.botany.bak
You can then move the
~/.botany.bak folder back to its original place if
things go south.
To use the script, run:
$ ~eeeeeta/botanyirc.sh localhost OWNER BOTNICK
OWNER with your IRC nickname, and
BOTNICK with the IRC nickname
you want the bot to use. If all goes well, you will then receive some
/NOTICEs on IRC from the bot, showing you your plant's status in much the
same way as regular botany. Here's an example of what the bot's output looks
12:06 -- etabotany: --- botany --- 12:06 -- etabotany: commands: water, look, garden, visit, instructions, exit 12:06 -- etabotany: plant: young jade plant 12:06 -- etabotany: score: 545750 12:06 -- etabotany: water ())))))))))) 99% 12:06 -- etabotany: . , 12:06 -- etabotany: o%O %,o 12:06 -- etabotany: \%o' 12:06 -- etabotany: . , _ . ., l, _ ., _ . 12:06 -- etabotany: ^ ' ` '
To control the plant, simply reply with one of the
commands that the bot
offers you. Please note that the
visit commands are yet to be
Feel free to yell at ~eeeeeta over IRC/alpine/whatever if you have questions!
