jabber-querybot - a modular perl jabber bot


jabber-querybot connects a jabber account and wait for messages. If a message comes in, it
forward it to your self programmend modul. The return string of your module, jabber-
querybot send it back to the jabber sender.

It is designed to be re-usable and to make it easy to write small Jabber bots that do one
thing and do it well. A simple concept with a lot of examples and experiences are

1. Create a jabber account on a jabber-server around

2. Create a bot application:

cd examples
cp Querymodule.pm /etc/jabber-querybot/Mybot.pm
cd /etc/jabber-querybot
ln -s Mybot.pm Querymodule.pm

Modify login parameters to your jabber-bot-account

vim Mybot.pm

our $hostname = "swissjabber.ch";
our $user = "";
our $password = "";
our $ident = "Testbot";
our $bot_admin = "\@swissjabber.ch";
our $port = "5222";
our $timeout = "5";
our $service_name = "$user\@$hostname";
our $bot_description = "Bot help title
Bot description";

For each jabber message, jabber-querybot will execute sub run_query, that you can write
here your application.

You can control how your jabber response will be:

· error = error message stanza

· presence = error as presence stanza

· ignore = ignore message


jabber-querybot has a lot of variables which you can easy modify for what you need:

$querystatus = [ 0 | 1 ]

· 0 = Bot will not proceed any incoming jabber messages.

· 1 = Bot will proceed incoming messages.

If the bot has too much workload, it goes to penalty status and wait some time until his
status change back to normal.

$timer_reconnect_default = 21600

Every 21600 seconds (6 hours) the bot will shutdown automatically, wait 10 seconds and
starting up again.

$timer_auto_query = 0

If you set in your module this variable to 60, the bot will every 60 seconds call the
function run_auto_query() which you may use for several things.

System load
If your systems load is >=6, this bot will shutdown the jabber connection and check every
10 seconds systems load. If load <=2, bot will start over.
