Shikadibot 0314’s replacement, codenamed “Rei II” is slowly approaching completion and now the various SVN commands offered by shikadibot (
repo, and a couple more) are implemented and working. Thanks to my newly acquired handle of class inheritance with Object-Oriented Perl, it’s now also possible to write Git equivalents with minimal hassle, which may become useful in the future, especially once I implement a way to query arbitrary named repositories.
This time I’m going to try to make an IRC bot that can be more easily adapted for other people’s needs, something that was a goal for Shikadibot’s development as well, but quickly went to hell as the code became the nightmarish abomination that it is nowadays.
Now codename “Rei II” has an official name and source repository: Rei 2 IRC Bot at Gitorious.org.
All progress has taken place in a private repository at AI’s server, but from now on I’m mirroring history at Gitorious for those who might actually want to take a look at the code, and — in the future — use or contribute to Rei 2’s development. The source license is and will continue to be the ISC license to allow easier integration of the code in other suites without the load of problems created by the GNU General Public License.
A project page on this very site will be coming soon.
