irc.theiaian.com & hubot

I just setup irc.theiaian.com as an IRC server ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Relay_Chat ) and setup the github campfire robot ( hubot ) in my IRC server. It has been fun to setup and play with, my plan is to hack on it and come up with some funny additional functionality for my hubot.

To connect to the IRC server you will need an IRC client or to use a web based IRC client. On OS X I use Limechat. Try and pick a more modern IRC client so that it will render some of the images that hubot returns, that way you wont have to click on each link and view in a browser.

To connect :

  • IRC server : irc.theiaian.com
  • port : 6697
  • channel : #General
