PyPlet is a very simple IRC bot who speaks.
Version: 1.30PyPlet is a very simple IRC bot who speaks ! You can use PyPlet in learning environments, to help visually impaired people, or just for fun. Please tell us what you do with it. PyPlet can be interfaced with ANY Text To Speech engine. Two scripts are provided as examples on how to interface PyPlet with Festival or MBrola. PyPlet is based on Python and is distributed under the GNU General Public Licence
Operating System: Linux
You need some Text To Speech engine correctly configured.
PyPlet contains two sample scripts to interface it with either Festival or Mbrola. Adapt them to your needs. These files are bin/pyplet-mbrola.sh and bin/pyplet-festival.sh
Finally, you need both the Python interpreter version 2.1 or higher, and the Python-IRClib module which you can download from SourceForge.
If you use a python-irclib version which is older than 0.4.1 then you'll have no way to know that the bot's nickname is already in
use, and the bot will just wait forever. With version 0.4.1 and above, PyPlet can detect this situation and exits immediately.
python setup.py install
You may need to be logged in with sufficient privileges (e.g. root)
Launching pyplet without any argument will display its help.
