IRC bot that defers to Cleverbot


A simple and fun IRC bot that connects to a server/channel of choice and will relay any messages addressed to it in the channel to Cleverbot for public humiliation/laughs.

Install and modify the default config file to suit your needs:

npm install -g cleverbot-irc
curl > .clvr.json
gedit .clvr.json

Alternatively, if you want to fork and work directly:

git clone
cd cleverbot-irc
npm install
gedit .clvr.json
npm start

Because spare time.

  • clvr will go a little crazy close to every full moon
  • imitating the responses of clvr back to her can get you ignored for some time

This is the main reason for the experimental tag; no guarantees on how this behaviour changes.

Because otherwise this module would be a super short. In fact, this short:

var CleverBot = new require('cleverbot-node');
var clever = new CleverBot();
module.exports = function (gu) {
  gu.handle(/(.*)/, function (saymessageuser) {
    clever.write(message, function (data) {

You don't need me for that.

<ob> clvr: are you more intelligent than daisy?

<seabee> clvr: are you a 9000 series?
<clvr> seabee: Yes. I know that I am insignificant on the large scale, and that there is so much going on that is beyond my existence.
<seabee> were fucked
<clvr> ob: What is ego?
<littlerob> bit of a harder question
<littlerob> than the last one
<ob> clvr: A person's sense of self-esteem or self-importance:  "a boost to my ego".The  part of the mind hat mediates between the conscious and the  unconscious and is responsible for reality testing and a sense of...
<clvr> ob: The superego.
<littlerob> clvr: the ego is clearly not the superego
<littlerob> that's the point
<rwge> your mother is clearly not the superego
<clvr> littlerob: Chocolate cake without carrots is not on a tigers daily menu.
<ob> good response
<littlerob> certainly stumped me
