This will install the latest stable version of SimpleBot. Change the word “stable” to “dev” to install the development branch. This single command installer should work fine on any modern Linux RedHat (RHEL, Fedora, CentOS) or Debian (Ubuntu) operating system. Basically, anything that has “yum” or “apt-get” should be happy. See the manual installation instructions for other OSes, or if the single-command installer doesn't work for you.
After installation, you will be provided instructions for connecting to a server for the first time. If you are running our sister product, SimpleIRC, on the same server as SimpleBot, this will be detected and everything automatically set up and connected for you.
The bot's Weather Plugin uses a free API available from WorldWeatherOnline.com. You will need to sign up for a free account and get an API Key in order to use this Plugin. For instructions, type !help weather in a channel where the bot is, or /msg simplebot help weather on the IRC console.
The bot's Twitter Plugin uses the free Twitter API v1.1. For this, you will need to sign up for a Twitter account, and create a free “application” on dev.twitter.com, in order to get API keys and use the Plugin. For instructions, type !help twitter in a channel where the bot is, or /msg simplebot help twitter on the IRC console.
