hubot-script-http

Simple remote execution of hubot commands using bash, without the need of an extra rest- or shelladapter.

Installation

npm install

URLS:

/cmd/help
/cmd/mustache/me/mark
and so on

Commands:

you need to add your ip in order to get access :

hubot ip show - shows ip addresses which have http GET-access 
hubot ip add <ip> - adds ip ( '*' allows everybody )
hubot ip flush - clears the ip table

Terminal powa!

Just put this little shellscript somewhere ('hubotbash' e.g.)

#!/bin/bash 
PORT=5555
URL="http://localhost:$PORT/cmd/$*"
URL="${URL// //}"
curl "$URL"

Then do this:

$ hubotbash help | grep mustache
hubot mustache me <query> - Searches Google Images for the specified query 
hubot mustache me <url> - Adds a mustache to the specified URL.

See? Terminal powa!

NOTE: for a more robust/secure shellscript look here

Why

I made this since I could only find an example which demonstrated posting something to a room. This however, gives full access to the hubot commands. Which is nice, because bash / curl / awk are my daily tools to work/massage data with.

Security

This is a proof of concept, therefore its not totally secure when you are not using https + hubot's express authentication (using env variables). Since not everybody will go thru this labour of setting this up, I've included a pseudo ip-security.

Anyways, try adding these express environment vars to get basic auth going:

  • EXPRESS_PASSWORD=yourpass
  • EXPRESS_USER=admin

Known issues

  • requesting non-existing commands can cause minor hickups on the adapter (since the adapter is temporarely overridden by httprequests).

Install

npm i hubot-script-http
