Relay

Purpose

Handles relaying between networks.

Usage

This plugin allows you to setup a relay between networks.

Note that you must tell the bot to join the channel you wish to relay on all networks with the join command or network command <network> join <channel> or to join the channel on all networks network cmdall join <channel>.

There are several advanced alternatives to this plugin, available as third-party plugins. You can check them out at https://limnoria.net/plugins.xhtml#messaging

Commands

join [<channel>]
Starts relaying between the channel <channel> on all networks. If on a network the bot isn’t in <channel>, it’ll join. This commands is required even if the bot is in the channel on both networks; it won’t relay between those channels unless it’s told to join both channels. If <channel> is not given, starts relaying on the channel the message was sent in.
nicks [<channel>]
Returns the nicks of the people in the channel on the various networks the bot is connected to. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent on the channel itself.
part <channel>
Ceases relaying between the channel <channel> on all networks. The bot will part from the channel on all networks in which it is on the channel.

Configuration

supybot.plugins.Relay.channels

This config variable defaults to ” “, is not network-specific, and is not channel-specific.

Determines which channels the bot will relay in.

supybot.plugins.Relay.channels.joinOnAllNetworks

This config variable defaults to “False”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will always join the channel(s) it relays when connecting to any network.

supybot.plugins.Relay.color

This config variable defaults to “True”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will color relayed PRIVMSGs so as to make the messages easier to read.

supybot.plugins.Relay.hostmasks

This config variable defaults to “True”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will relay the hostmask of the person joining or parting the channel when they join or part.

supybot.plugins.Relay.ignores

This config variable defaults to ” “, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines what hostmasks will not be relayed on a channel.

supybot.plugins.Relay.includeNetwork

This config variable defaults to “True”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will include the network in relayed PRIVMSGs; if you’re only relaying between two networks, it’s somewhat redundant, and you may wish to save the space.

supybot.plugins.Relay.noticeNonPrivmsgs

This config variable defaults to “False”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will used NOTICEs rather than PRIVMSGs for non-PRIVMSG relay messages (i.e., joins, parts, nicks, quits, modes, etc.)

supybot.plugins.Relay.public

This config variable defaults to “True”, is not network-specific, and is not channel-specific.

Determines whether this plugin is publicly visible.

supybot.plugins.Relay.punishOtherRelayBots

This config variable defaults to “True”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will detect other bots relaying and respond by kickbanning them.

supybot.plugins.Relay.topicSync

This config variable defaults to “True”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will synchronize topics between networks in the channels it relays.
