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!
