zirc 1.2.8

Python IRCP Library

Quick Start

import zirc, ssl

class Bot(zirc.Client):
    def __init__(self):
        self.connection = zirc.Socket(wrapper=ssl.wrap_socket)
        self.config = zirc.IRCConfig(host="irc.freenode.net",
            port=6697,
            nickname="zirctest",
            ident="bot",
            realname="test bot",
            channels=["##chat"],
            caps=zirc.Caps(zirc.Sasl(username="username", password="password")))

        self.connect(self.config)
        self.start()

    def on_privmsg(bot, event, irc):
        irc.reply(event, "It works!")
        #Or alternatively:
        #irc.privmsg(event.target, "It works!")

Bot()

This library implements the IRC protocol, it’s an event-driven IRC Protocol framework.

Installation

PyPi

sudo pip install zirc
sudo pip3 install zirc

Github

sudo pip install git+https://github.com/itslukej/zirc.git
sudo pip3 install git+https://github.com/itslukej/zirc.git

Github will contain the latest bug fixes and improvements but sometimes also “bad quality” code.

Features

  • Automatic PING/PONG between the server
  • IRC Message parsing
  • A simple set up and connection method
  • Easy installation
  • Easy CTCP Set-up

IPv6

To use IPv6 with zirc.Socket, you can use the family socket.AF_INET6:

import socket

self.connection = zirc.Socket(family=socket.AF_INET6)

Proxy

Initialize zirc.Socket with argument socket_class:

self.connection = zirc.Socket(socket_class=zirc.Proxy(host="localhost", port=1080, protocol=zirc.SOCKS5))

Ideas

  • Multiple connection support

TODO

  • More documentation
