[Mod] Internet Relay Chat [irc]

by kaeza » Post

Internet Relay Chat Mod

This mod provides a two-way communication between the in-game chat, and an arbitrary IRC channel.
This is done by connecting a bot to the channel, that acts as a "proxy" for messages.

The code of the actual mod is released under the BSD 2 Clause License (see LICENSE.txt).
Licenses for modules/libraries used are on their respective LICENSE files.

Dependencies: default

Check out our official IRC channel ##mt-irc-mod on Freenode!

Note: Should work fine under *nix, but for Windows it needs some special setup (old alternative).

Important Note: If you intend to run this on a server where non-ASCII characters may be used (e.g. non-english-speaking servers), be sure your environment's language encoding is set to UTF-8. Otherwise, you may see errors about "character conversion failed" or "invalid wstring". Thanks to fireglow for helping sort this out.

By the way, if you want to see a demo of this mod, join #minetest at irc.inchra.net.

Please read the SETTINGS section in the README file for info about how to configure.

Downloads Add-ons:
  • irc_commands by ShadowNinja - Enables running chat commands via IRC.
Thanks for taking your time to read this :)

I'd like to thank the users who allowed to test this in #minetest, and all of those who suggested improvements, and helped me by providing tips (in no particular order):

0gb.us, Shadow/ShadowNinja, Shaun/kizeren, RAPHAEL, DARGON, Calinou, Exio, vortexlabs/mrtux, marveidemanis, marktraceur, jmf/john_minetest, sdzen/Muadtralk, VanessaE, PilzAdam, sfan5, celeron55, KikaRz, RealBadAngel, and all the people who commented in here. Thanks to you all!

(If I forgot to mention someone, I apologize in advance. Please catch me on #minetest and notice me.)

Thanks Mito551.

It's part in Lua and part in C.
The low-level sockets interface is in C.
The IRC encapsulation, and the mod itself are in Lua.

I will provide a link to source soon.

Yeah. Both to talk to IRC from within game and to read from IRC channel too.

This may seem a little noobish but how to use this mod? I downloaded the master zip from github and I see no "irc" directory to copy over. Do I extract the master zip file and rename that folder irc and copy it? Or must this be compiled somehow first? The "outdated" link looks a lot different than the github master zip.

Well, first things first. The "outdated" link is a precompiled version I used for testing, and it came in a ready to use mod directory. The github "master.zip" contains the source code which you need to compile. I updated both the Linux package and committed some changes to github (see first post).
Windows users will have to compile and test themselves or wait until someone posts a precompiled version, sorry.

Just download the updated Linux version then :)

"Do you have Windows?" No on Linux Mint 13.

"0.1.1 - Linux <-- Latest" 404ed

Still don't know how to "prepare" the github master zip to get it working (not overly familiar with compiling of source code without some instructions).

May I suggest adding to github a file on what is needed to compile the mod?

no real instruction included ... i compiled it, made the irc folder with the package.sh and placed it into the minetest mod folder, edited my irc server settings and channel, but no more instructions are available. Restartet the server and nothing happened.

after placed some ambigious command like /irc the server crashed.

Code: Select all

ERROR[main]: ERROR: An unhandled exception occurred: ServerError: LuaError: error: ../mods/irc/init.lua:107: attempt to index global 'player' (a nil value)
ERROR[main]: stack traceback:

In thread 7f1b23cec740:
/build/buildd/minetestc55-0.4.3/src/main.cpp:1741: int main(int, char**): Assertion '0' failed.
Debug stacks:
DEBUG STACK FOR THREAD 7f1b23cec740:
#0  int main(int, char**)
how about servers and password? If the server reuquests userpassword, does this mod then currently work? I mean MT server password
