2008-07-29-jance a jabber bot for pownce
Well I have just spent a couple of day writings a jabber bot that uses the Pownce api to interact with the site. It has been a fun experience, I will publish the mercurial repository of the repo as soon as I solve this questions.
Should I publish the Pownce App key and secret along with the code?
If I do so, are rethere any security implications of doing that?
I haven't checked, but Pownce Apps Terms could have something to say
In the mean while you can play with the one running at valkertown. Just add firstname.lastname@example.org to any Jabber roster and type help.
The ongoing documentation is on my home page.
I wrote the bot using Python, Twisted for the Jabber stuff, Oauth to talk with Pownce, YAML to store user data and JSON(simplejson) to extract data from Pownce answers.
