Mashed Hack - IRC Speaker Bot

June 21, 2008 at 10:52 PM | categories: python, oldblog | View Comments

Since I wanted to "sit" on  some IRC channels here at Mashed and rather than flit channels or waste screen estate I decided to do a short hack to listen to the channel. As a hack for mashed, it does the following things:
  • It's IRC bot
  • It joins 3 channels - #kamtest, #kamaelia & #mashed
  • It listens to the channel

Anything that anyone says is then spoken (via espeak) by the bot. ie speech synth.
