NAME

Dancer::Plugin::IRCNotice - Send IRC notices from your dancer app

SYNOPSIS

  use Dancer::Plugin::IRCNotice;

  notify('This is a notification');

DESCRIPTION

Dancer::Plugin::IRCNotice provides a quick and dirty way to send IRC NOTICEs to a specific channel.

This is very alpha software right now. No error checking is done.

CONFIGURATION

  plugins:
    IRCNotice:
      host: 'chat.freenode.net'
      nick: 'testnick12345'
      name: 'Dancer::Plugin::IRCNotify'
      channel: '#dpintest'
      type: 'notice'

The host, nick, name, and channel should be pretty obvious.

The type parameter lets you pick the type of message to send. The default is "notice" which sends a notice to the channel. You can also choose "message" which well send a normal message to the channel.

TODO

This is so bootleg, it really needs to be cleaned up to handle IRC correctly. Unfortunately, all of the IRC modules I saw on cpan are event based monstrosities so this just uses IO::Socket::IP to connect.

The notify routine should probably let you override the settings or maybe I should use something like Dancer::Plugin::DBIC to define multiple notifiers that can then be used.

A connection to IRC must be made for each notification presently. Instead, it should try to keep a connection open and reuse it or something.
