willie - A highly customizable Internet Relay Chat bot
willie [-q|--quit] [-k|--kill] [-d|--fork] [--quiet] [-c filename |--config= filename]
willie [-w|--configure-all] [--configure-modules] [--configure-database]
willie runs a bot that provides some usefull (and some useless) commands in one or more
Internet Relay Chat channels. It reads configuration options, such as the network to
connect to, channels to join, and more from a config file specified by the -c option. If
no config file is specified, ~/.willie/default.cfg is used. If the configuration file
being used does not exist, a brief configuration wizard will be run to set up the basic
options, and optionally set up a database for user data and any modules that may need
In most cases, simply running willie will be sufficient; the bot will start after initial
configuration, and will run until it is told to quit through IRC.
-h or --help
Show a brief summary of these options.
-c filename or --config= filename
Run Willie with the configuration options from the specified file. An absolute
pathname can be given, or the name of a file within the configuration directory may
also be given. ~/.willie is the preferred location, but this and -c will also look
in ~/.jenni and ~/.phenny for legacy reasons. When the suffix of the file is .cfg ,
it may be omitted.
-d or --fork
Run Willie in the background. The bot will safely run in the background, and can
later be killed with -q or -d
-q or --quit
Gracefully quit a daemonized instance of Willie. This option determines the instance
to quit by the name of the config file given by the -c option, if used, so the same
argument must be given with -c when using -q.
-k or --kill
Terminates a daemonized instance of Willie. This option determines the instance to
kill by the name of the config file given by the -c option, if used, so the same
argument must be given with -c when using -k.
-l or --list
List all config files found in the usual configuration file directories: ~/.willie
~/.jenni and ~/.phenny
-m or --migrate
Attempt to migrate a configuration file for an older version of the bot to the new
format. Versions prior to 3.1 used a configuration file written in Python, which can
be converted with this tool.
Suppress all output from the bot to the terminal.
-w or --configure-all
Run the initial configuration wizard. This can be run with -c to configure a
specified file, or without it to work on the default file.
Check for modules with configuration options, and allow the user to modify those
options. Changes will be added to the default file, or the file given to -c if used.
Run a wizard for configuring the user information database options. Changes will be
added to the default file, or the file given to -c if used.
