I am running tircd
(an ircd proxy for the twitter API) so I can use xchat as my twitter client.
tircd allows me to group people that I follow, by creating a new channel (just /join
), and then just /invite
who I want in it.
It also allows me to perform searches by /join #whatever
followed by /topic [searchterm]
or /join #hashtag
followed by /topic #hashtag #hashtag
I need an xchat script that will automate all of this for me and
- autojoin a specified list of channels on my tircd
- change the topics on those channels (each will be different)
- invite a specified list of users to some of those channels.
Something like this:/join #example1
/topic #example2 #example2
/invite person1 person2 person3
This has to work only with the tircd and not interfere with any real irc networks & channels I may also be connected to.
This can be in either perl or ruby, because my python plugin doesn't work with the version of python that I have installed on my machine. (it's for 2.4 and I have 2.6) And I am not sure why I can't get tcl to work.
I also need another script that will automatically convert any & all links I post on just the tircd channels to tinyurl links. I do not want to have to use a /tinyurl
command. It must work on links that appear anywhere in a message I post. It also must not affect any other channels on any other network. I don't want to automatically send tinyurl links everywhere, just to twitter.
I don't know the first thing about xchat scripting, nor do I know perl or ruby...otherwise I would try to do this myself.
