Config

Purpose

Handles configuration of the bot while it is running.

Usage

Provides access to the Supybot configuration. This is a core Supybot plugin that should not be removed!

Commands

channel [<network>] [<channel>] <name> [<value>]
If <value> is given, sets the channel configuration variable for <name> to <value> for <channel> on the <network>. Otherwise, returns the current channel configuration value of <name>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself. More than one channel may be given at once by separating them with commas. <network> defaults to the current network.
config <name> [<value>]
If <value> is given, sets the value of <name> to <value>. Otherwise, returns the current value of <name>. You may omit the leading “supybot.” in the name if you so choose.
default <name>
Returns the default value of the configuration variable <name>.
export <filename>
Exports the public variables of your configuration to <filename>. If you want to show someone your configuration file, but you don’t want that person to be able to see things like passwords, etc., this command will export a “sanitized” configuration file suitable for showing publicly.
help <name>
Returns the description of the configuration variable <name>.
list <group>
Returns the configuration variables available under the given configuration <group>. If a variable has values under it, it is preceded by an ‘@’ sign. If a variable is a ‘ChannelValue’, that is, it can be separately configured for each channel using the ‘channel’ command in this plugin, it is preceded by an ‘#’ sign. And if a variable is a ‘NetworkValue’, it is preceded by a ‘:’ sign.
network [<network>] <name> [<value>]
If <value> is given, sets the network configuration variable for <name> to <value> for <network>. Otherwise, returns the current network configuration value of <name>. <network> defaults to the current network.
reload takes no arguments
Reloads the various configuration files (user database, channel database, registry, etc.).
reset channel [<network>] [<channel>] <name>
Resets the channel-specific value of variable <name>, so that it will match the network-specific value (or the global one if the latter isn’t set). <network> and <channel> default to the current network and channel.
reset network [<network>] [<channel>] <name>
Resets the network-specific value of variable <name>, so that it will match the global. <network> defaults to the current network and channel.
searchhelp <phrase>
Searches for <phrase> in the help of current configuration variables.
searchvalues <word>
Searches for <word> in the values of current configuration variables.
setdefault <name>
Resets the configuration variable <name> to its default value. Use commands ‘reset channel’ and ‘reset network’ instead to make a channel- or network- specific value inherit from the global one.
