# Setting up an sopel IRC bot on uberspace

I had to set up an IRC bot for my project channel for the imag project.

After a short research I descided to use sopel.

Setting up sopel was a pleasure, actually. I executed

pip3.4 install sopel --user
sopel


to install sopel and start it. It then starts an interactive configuration walkthrough and you can configure all the parts.

I then edited the config by hand to exclude most of the available modules:

[core]
enable = help,calc,countdown,isup,tell,uptime,meetbot,clock


and then started it as daemon via sopel -d. That’s it? Yes, that’s it!
