A full featured bot for turntable.fm
npm install cmbot
Triggers are special commands any mod can set that will make the bot say a certain phrase. Any user can activate a trigger (to make the bot say the phrase), either in chat or PM. See trigger, triggerban and triggerlimit.
I'd be happy to help you get set up if you run into problems. You can usually find me in the Chillout Mixer.
Obviously the bot should be a mod of the room it will be in, to be useful.
To get the bot's auth, userid, and roomid, see this link. Use the bookmarklet after logging in to turntable as the user the bot will run as, then copy and paste the auth, roomid and userid values.
The bot will create two json files (in the same directory as your script) to store state information, "settings.json" (stores the queue, shitlisted users, triggers, etc) and "djs.json" (id's of users who have dj'd, so a user will only get the introductory PM once).
I'd suggest creating a new directory for your bot, perhaps using the name of your bot. Create a new .js file in this directory (perhaps also with the name of your bot, ie chilloutmixerbot.js), consisting of the following content. Set the 3 bot parameters (auth, userid & roomid) and whatever else to have the bot behave as you see fit. Run your .js file and the bot should start running.

You can load custom modules at runtime that contain custom commands and/or events, using the
/loadmodule command. In order to use custom modules, however, make sure you defined the
modules_directory setting in your bot's .js file. In the example given above, simply create a
modules directory in the same directory your bot's .js file is located, and put your modules there.
You can also have your bot autoload any modules it finds by setting the
autoload_modules option to true (see the setup example above).
Please note:If you have previously used the
on methods to add custom commands/events, please switch to using dynamic modules as those methods are deprecated and will be removed in a future version.
Your custom module can contain one or more custom commands that your bot will respond to. Simply create a .js file and place it in your modules directory (which you defined in the
modules_directory option). As an example, create the file beer.js in your modules directory with the following contents:
var customCommands =name: 'beer' // This is what the bot will respond to (ie, /beer)if!optionspmvar user;ifoptionsarg != ''var u = optionscmbotgetUserByNameoptionsarg;user = u === false ? optionsarg : '@' + uname;elseuser = '@' + optionscmbotusersoptionsuseridname;optionscmbotbotspeak"/me taps a keg and gives " + user + " a cold one! *cheers* :beer:";elseoptionscmbotbotpm"That command is chat-only." optionsuserid;modonly: falsepmonly: falsehide: truehelp: 'Text that shows when you type /help beer.'acl: false //;exportscustomCommands = customCommands;
Then, PM the bot
/loadmodule beer. The bot will then respond to the /beer command which will prompt the bot to give you (or someone you specify) a beer. You can also do
/unloadmodule beer to unload the module and have the bot not respond to
For the actual command, the
options object passed to it has the following makeup:
// a reference to your bot object. You can use this to find a user's details (using the 'getUserByName'// method, as above), or to make the bot interact with the room (see Alain's API)cmbot: <object>// Whether or not this command was sent from the chat room or from a PMpm: <true|false>// The userid of the user who initiated the commanduserid: <string>// the argument entered after the command. For instance, for the 'beer' command, if you// type '/beer someuser', arg would contain 'someuser'arg: <string>
You can program your own logic for when certain turntable events happen. For instance, simply add the code like below into a file in your modules directory called
Events supported: speak, ready, roomChanged, update_votes, newsong, endsong, pmmed, add_dj, rem_dj, update_user, new_moderator, rem_moderator, registered, deregistered, booted_user, snagged, nosong, tcpConnect, tcpMessage, tcpEnd, and httpRequest.
See Alain Gilbert's TTAPI (which this bot uses) for more details on what each event is for at https://github.com/alaingilbert/Turntable-API.
Note: These events fire after the bot's own logic does.
var customEvents =on: 'speak'// Code in here gets run when the module is loaded. See the example module 'greeting.js'.ifdatatextmatch/\balot\b/icmbotbotspeak"";;exportscustomEvents = customEvents;
/loadmodule alot The above code will cause the bot to display that url if someone says 'alot' instead of 'a lot':)
Also note that the event receives an extra variable before any others that the ttapi does - this variable is your bot's object itself (cmbot, in the above example), which provides you with all the properties and methods of the bot, allowing you to make the bot speak, pm someone, or all kinds of other things.
You can hook the same event in multiple modules. When modules are autoloaded, they are fired in alphabetical order based on the name of the module's .js file. If not autoloaded, they are fired in the order that they are loaded.
As with custom commands, you can
/unloadmodule alot to cancel the bot from reacting to the event.
customEvents variables can be an array of objects, so you can add multiple commands and events in one file, if you wish.
Add yourself to the queue. If you are already in the queue, it will tell you what position you are in.
Set yourself as AFK. When a spot on the decks opens, the bot alerts the first non-afk user in the queue that it's their turn.
Set yourself as back (ie, unafk).
Show how many minutes each DJ has been idle.
When a DJ issues this command, the bot will escort them off the decks after they finish playing their next song.
The bot will fan the user.
Get a list of commands a user has access to, as well as see more specific help for a command (ie,
/help queue). If a user is not allowed to run a command, they will not see that command in the list the bot shows them (ie, regular users will not see any mod commands listed).
Show who is in the queue.
Show how many songs each DJ has played.
Show how many times a song has been played. Depending on configuration, can use either last.fm stats or internal stats that are stored in a mysql database.
If a DJ needs to refresh their browser, they can use the /refresh command to not lose their spot on the decks. Otherwise, the bot will alert the next non-afk user in the queue that it is their turn. Note:this is not (yet) enforced.
Remove yourself from the queue.
Set your twitter username, so the bot can @mention you when it tweets song plays. The bot will will respond with a randomly generated 32 character string which you must then tweet, after which you use the /verifytwitter command to verify your username.
Use google's URL Shortening service to get a short version of any url.
Using songkick.com, list the next 7 shows for the currently playing artist (using
/shows), or for a specific artist (using
Get last.fm tags for the currently playing song (
/tags) or a particular artist (
Show how long the bot has been running for.
Verify your twitter username, set with /settwitter. The bot will look up your most recent tweet for the randomly generated string it sent you, and if it finds it, saves your username.
Note: If a command is marked as ACL Enforced, initially the command is only available to the master user, although that user can use
/addacl to give access to the command to anyone they wish.
Add a user to the queue.
Add access to a command to a user.
Show or enable/disable autodj.
Set the bot's avatar.
The bot will awesome the currently playing track.
Ban an artist. If a DJ attempts to play a song by a banned artist, the bot will immediately escort them from the decks and warn them that the artist is banned.
Ban a song. If a DJ attempts to play a banned song, the bot will give them 15 seconds to skip or else be escorted off the decks. If no argument is supplied, the currently playing song is banned, and the 15 second warning is given. Artist and song arguments are case insensitive, but must match the spelling of the id3 tags exactly.
Show the list of banned artists. If this list gets long enough, it will cut off when displayed in chat, but won't be in PM.
Ban a user from being able to DJ. I will automatically escort any banned user from the decks. If a reason is specified, I will tell the user the reason when I escort them.
Remove a user from the Deck shitlist, allowing them to DJ again.
Makes the bot DJ. If there are no open spots, the bot add itself to the queue (unless it's not an FFA Day). If there are open spots, the bot will simply step up to the decks. See notes on how the bot adds songs to it's queue for more details.
Make the bot say something in chat. To have the bot do an action, just use
/echo /me does something, for example.
Show or enable/disable queue enforcement.
Get the next X number of songs in the bot's queue. The number X is either the number in set_limit (ie, how many songs each DJ can play for their turn), or if that is set to false, 5.
The bot will kick a user from the room.
The bot will lame the currently playing song.
Load a module to add a custom command or event.
file is the name of a file, minus the
.js extension, residing in the
modules_directory as defined in the bot's options.
Set a trigger that that is only activated by mods. See trigger.
Get your currently set timezone. If not set, modpm will display the time in the timezone the bot is configured as being in (default PST).
Adds a user to the mobile whitelist, allowing them to DJ from a mobile device (android or iphone). Users not on the whitelist will be automatically escorted, and kicked for repeated attempts (3 escorts in less than 10 seconds). Mods are exempt and may always DJ from a mobile device.
Turn modpm on or off.
Move a user into a new position in the queue. A position of
1 is the first spot in the queue, etc.
Show how many songs the bot has in its playlist.
Set the bot's profile info. Usage: '/profile '. Available fields: name, twitter, facebook, website, about, topartists, and hangout.
Remove access to a command for a certain user.
Remove a user from the queue.
Remove a song from the bot's queue/playlist. Position is the index provided by /searchplaylist. If last.fm is enabled, this also 'unloves' the track.
Search the bot's playlist for matching songs.
search_string must be at least 4 characters long. If multiple words are specified, each has to be contained in either the artist or song name. ie,
/searchplaylist foo bar would match a song whose artist contains the word 'foo' and song title contains the word 'bar', or vice versa. Results will be in the form of
<index>:<artist> - <track>.
Set the playcount for a particular user.
** PM Only**
Set how many minutes each DJ can be idle before given a 1 minute warning, after which time the bot will escort them down from the decks. Default 15 minutes. Set to 0 for no limit.
Display or change the set limit, i.e., how many songs each DJ can play before being escorted down. Set to 0 for unlimited. Once set, this overrides set_limit in your main .js file and will persist after the bot restarts.
Move a song to the top of the bot's queue.
val is the index returned by /searchplaylist.
Set your timezone. The bot will display the adjusted time in modpm, and it will adjust for daylight savings time automatically.
If the bot is DJ'ing, this command will make the bot skip its song. Otherwise, the bot will say "Please skip this track." in chat.
Add a user, by name or userid, to the bot's shitlist. If the user is in the room when the shitlist is set, the bot will kick the user. Every time the user joins the room the bot will automatically kick them.
Show any users from the mobile whitelist who are in the room. The mobile whitelist only contains user id's so only users present in the room are able to be shown.
Makes the bot cease informational messages for one round. ie, if the message interval is 15 minutes, and there are 3 messages to show, the bot will not say them for 45 minutes.
Set a trigger.
/trigger facebook http://www.facebook.com/groups/.... will cause the bot to say
http://www.facebook.com/groups/.... if anyone types
/trigger foo shorten:http://facebook.com will cause the bot to say
http://goo.gl/mS4A. Supports multiple URLs, too.
Ban a user from using any triggers for 24 hours. Useful if a user abuses triggers.
Set a time limit (in seconds) between triggers being executed, for a particular trigger. ie,
/trigger foo bar, then
triggerlimit foo 5, then a user types /foo, causing the bot to say 'bar', and if someone says '/foo' again the bot will not say 'bar' again if 5 seconds has not elapsed.
Causes the bot to tweet (if twitter credentials are provided).
Unban an artist. Usage is the same as /ban.
Unban a song. If this command is given with no arguments after /bansong is given (also with no arguments) within the 15 second warning window, the warning is cancelled and the DJ will not be escorted off the decks.
Unload a module, to prevent the bot from responding to custom commands or events. Usage is the same as
Remove a mod trigger.
Remove a user from the mobile whitelist.
Remove a user from the shitlist.
Remove a trigger.
Cancels a warning.
Warns a DJ that the song they are playing either is not loading, or that it is out of genre for the room. If the DJ does not skip the trick within 15 seconds, the bot will escort the DJ from the decks. Usage is '/warn' for a generic message, or '/warn genre' or '/warn loading' for a more specific one.
Shows a list of which users have voted awesome and which have lamed. Turntable seems to have made it much harder to tell if a user has lamed, so only some lames show up for some reason.
Make the bot add the currently playing song to it's queue, and if last.fm is set up (with valid credentials), the bot will 'love' the track on last.fm.
