Defined Type: tcpircbot::instance

Defined in:
modules/tcpircbot/manifests/instance.pp

Overview

Define: tcpircbot::instance

Provisions a daemon that maintains a connection to IRC and listens on a server socket. Data read from the socket is forwarded to an IRC channel.

Parameters

channels

Echo read messages to these IRC channels.

nickname

Bot's preferred IRC nick. Should be registered with nickserv. Defaults to the resource's title.

password

Nickserv password for bot's nickname. The bot uses SASL to authenticate itself with nickserv.

server_host

Hostname of IRC server to which the bot should connect (default: 'chat.freenode.net').

server_port

IRC server's port (default: 7000).

cidr

Allowed CIDR range. Optional. If defined, inbound connections from addresses outside this range will be rejected. If not defined (the default), the service will only accept connections from private and loopback IPs. Multiple ranges may be specified as an array of values. Example: ['192.0.2.0/24', '2001:db8::/32']

infiles

Read these files as extra inputs. Optional.

ssl

Whether to use SSL to connect to IRC server (default: true).

max_clients

Maximum number of simultaneous inbound connections (default: 5).

listen_port

Port to listen on for messages (default: 9200).

Examples

The following snippet will configure a bot nicknamed 'announcebot' that will sit on #wikimedia-operations on Freenode and forward messages that come in from private and loopback IPs on port 9200:

include tcpircbot

tcpircbot::instance { 'announcebot':
  channels => '#wikimedia-operations',
  password => $passwords::irc::announcebot,
}

  • channels (Any)

  • server_host (Any) (defaults to: 'chat.freenode.net')
  • server_port (Any) (defaults to: 7000)
  • cidr (Any) (defaults to: undef)
  • infiles (Any) (defaults to: undef)
  • ssl (Any) (defaults to: true)
