Get TWiki content from IM

It would be interesting to have a bot that let you direct into a twiki topic e.g. a "log bot", so you could say things like "log last 10 lines to XXX.YyyZzz

The basic idea is an IRC and IM bot that can append messages to TWiki topics. It would make use of a plugin based on CommentPlugin and possibly MailInContrib. Formatting would be handled by templates in the same manner as CommentPlugin. When combined with the comment plugin this could be a very useful discussion tool.

We need a general API so it can be attached to AIM, Jabber etc.

One thing to keep in mind, the more ways in the more likely spam is. But that's a risk you always take, MailInContrib has the same problem but has mechanisms to control it e.g. for IRC, you should only accept input from registered Nicks.


  • Which protocols should be supported? Obviously IRC, but which others?
  • Would anyone be interested in sponsoring this work?

It would be handy to perform some sort of user mapping, so that the appropriate TWiki user could be credited with making the post.

e.g. nick -> TWiki user. MailInContrib does this for the sending email address (it looks it up in the registered emails for users)
