These are a collection of community scripts for hubot, a chat bot for your company.
Important: this repository is no longer accepting new scripts. Please read CONTRIBUTING.md for details.
There is a new system for distributing scripts, and adding them to your own hubot. Locate the appropriate script in the hubot-scripts organization or on npm tagged as hubot-scripts, and follow the script's documentation. In general, this will be something like:
- Add a line to external-scripts.json
- Add a line to package.json
- Add environment variables, depending on the script
Check out the hubot-script-catalog for a list and description of all the available scripts.
Once you have Hubot installed, you should already have
package.json to be sure. If that is the case, you update
hubot-scripts.json to list any scripts from this repository you want to load.
hubot-scripts.json looks like:
If you update
package.json, you will automatically get
updates to your scripts listed here.
Alternatively, you can copy files from this repository into your
directory. Note that you would not get updates from the
repository unless you copy them yourself.
Any third-party dependencies for scripts need the addition of your
package.json otherwise a lot of errors will be thrown during the start up of
your hubot. You can find a list of dependencies for a script in the
documentation header at the top of the script.
Restart your robot, and you're good to go.

file. (Check out an example). We'll pull out the commands
from those lines and display them in the generic, robot-wide
Please note we're no longer including external dependencies in the
package.json, so should you wish to include them please include the package
name and required version in the TomDoc comments at the top of your script.
We're now requiring all scripts in hubot-scripts to contain a documentation header so people know everything about the script.
