JackBot is an IRC bot written entirely from scratch in 100% pure Java. It is a pet project of mine, and a few of my friends have expressed interest in writing plugins for it.
JackBot is designed from the ground up to be an extensible framework on which to build IRC services. (Damn that sounds like a bunch of marketing bullshit! Where did I pull that out of?!) It is written in 100% pure Java, so it gains the inherent stability and security that a bytecode interpreted language provides. Some of the other Gee-Whiz!! things it does:
- Simple plugin-based architecture for adding new functionality.
- Twitter support.
- It’s Free, and free!
Check out JackBot’s SourceForge project for news and bugfixes. If you use Jack, drop me a line and let me know.
