Using modified MeetBot

As part of my GSoC project I made some changes to MeetBot. If you want to use it you should:

  1. Install supybot. This should be easy, on Gentoo just
    emerge supybot
  2. Get a copy of modified plugin. You can download it from GitHub. Or if you have git installed you can clone official repository:

    git clone git://

    or development repository:

    git clone git://
  3. Add
    to your PYTHONPATH (or link it to directory in which you will run supybot).
  4. Link$(sources_directory)/bot/MeetBotto your Supybot plugins directory. On Gentoo you can do it by executingln -s $(sources_directory)/bot/MeetBot /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/supybot/plugins
  5. Configure supybot. Remember to enable MeetBot plugin:
  6. Configure MeetBot. In directory with your supybot configuration create file
    and in the file put customized version of (please fix indentation):
    class Config(object):
    # Meeting management urls
    voters_url = 'http://localhost:3000/users/voters'
    agenda_url = 'http://localhost:3000/agendas/current_items'
    result_url = 'http://localhost:3000/agendas/current_items'
    # Credentials for posting voting results
    voting_results_user = 'user'
    voting_results_password = 'password'
    # You must set this - it's turned off by default
    manage_agenda = True

    there are some more options but those above should be enough to get started.
  7. Run supybot and try out the bot:
    supybot $(your_config_name).conf
