At RBOSE IRC we use different kind of bots, these are so far:
... and a lot scripts, modules and extensions. :-D
Anope is a set of IRC Services forked from Epona early 2003 to pick up where Epona had been abandoned. Ever since there have been improvements on quality and functionality of Anope, resulting in the feature rich set of services that the Anope developer team offers today.
There are two releases of Anope available, allowing you to pick what is best for your net. The stable releases are snapshots of the development series which are being continually tested, resulting in a very stable yet powerful set of services. The development releases are where the real work happens.
New features get implemented in development release, resulting in a package that defines the future of IRC Services today.
Anope offers various services clients to maintain your IRC network. Every service is aimed at one goal, offering a complete set of features for the given goal.
Next to these popular services, Anope also provides a few other services. These include HelpServ, a service used to give people a simple overview of services, DevNull, a message sink, and Global, used to send global notices to everyone on your IRC network.
Due to its popularity, Eggdrop has a plethora of Tcl scripts available to expand its functionality, most of them written by Eggdrop users.[p 1] Scripts are available to add and extend functionality such as: online games, stats, user and channel management, information storage and lookup, greeting channel members, tracking last seen times, botnet management, anti-spam, file serving and distribution (usually via the Direct Client-to-Client protocol), IRC services (similar to ChanServ and NickServ), and much more.
Eggdrop also features a botnet, which allows multiple bots to be linked together to share data and act in a coordinated fashion.[p 8][p 6] Eggdrop includes built-in support for sharing user information and channel bans. A script is required to simultaneously control multiple bots and for bots to coordinate IRC channels management and modes.
Eggdrop features a botnet party line that is accessible via Direct Client-to-Client (DCC) Chat or telnet. People are able to communicate with each other within the botnet on various channels in a sort of miniature IRC. Channel 0, the default, is referred to as the "party line".[p 6]
missboty is mainly maintained by DNS.
Pywikirc is our funky Wikibot. :-))
Nested commands, easy configuration, and an incredibly flexible and easy-to-use plugin system distinguish Supybot from other IRC bots.
There simply isn't a more flexible or easier to use IRC bot!
We offer the following services through supybots:
rBOTse is mainly maintained by Lukas.
nobody is mainly maintained by Viper.
