Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Puppet - Ventriloquy via POE-flavored YAML over TCP


Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Puppet enables talking in channels as the bot by sending commands to it over a TCP socket.


You will need to load the module into your instance:


The bot will listen on the address and port specified in the store via the keys addr and port. If not specified, the bind address and port will default to and 28800, respectively.



This method is an initialization method called by the constructor inherited from Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module. The plugin object itself is instantiated by the load method in Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable.

The initialization comprises the entire functionality of this plugin. The real work is done by the POE pieces and the ClientInput callback.

We instantiate a new POE::Component::Server::TCP object that utilizes a YAML serializer via POE::Filter::Reference. The TCP server expects to receive a hashref that is passed directly to the bot's say method.


This plugin offers absolutely no access control, so be aware of how/where you deploy it.
