an IRC bot helping collaborative work
kgb-bot [--config file] [--foreground] [--simulate file]
- --config file
Specify configuration file to load. Default is /etc/kgb-bot/kgb.conf.
- --config-dir directory
Specify directory with configuration files to load. All files like *.conf are loaded, in alphabetical order. Default is /etc/kgb-bot/kgb.conf.d.
Do not detach from console, print log messages to STDERR and do not become a daemon, useful for debugging.
- --simulate file
Do not connect to IRC. Instead, output each notification line to the given file, like:
#chan repo user branch revision module changed-paths #chan repo commit message line 1 #chan repo commit message line 2
There are no colour codes in the output, unless --simulate-color is also given.
Include color codes in the file used by --simulate.

webhook_request request response dirmatch
Handler for webhook HTTP request.
This handler only processes the HTTP part, parsing URI parameters and POST contents.
The actual processing and IRC notification is done via an appropriate
gitlab_webhook_* event, asynchronously.
Handle a gitlab webhook call for the
push event (branch update).
Expects the body of the POST request (decoded, as a hash reference) in ARG0 and all the request parameters in ARG1.
The request is expected to conform to the GitLab webhook documentation at <https://salsa.debian.org/help/user/project/integrations/webhooks.md#push-events>.
The request parameters should look like the result of the CGI's param() method.
Supported parameters (?param=value¶m=value2...)
The name of the channel to post notifications to. Leading hash sign is optional and should be URL-encoded if present (%23).
The name of the IRC network, servicing the channel. Supported networks are configured by the bot's admin.
A boolean flag, indicating that the notifications shouldn't also be posted to the
#commitschannel on Freenode.
A boolean flag enabling colors. Defaults to true.
Optional text to prepend to the commit ID.
If true, IRC notification uses
noticemessages, instead of
privmsg. Defaults to
noticemessages are usually less intrusive.
- squash_threshold number
For push events, limit the commit notifications to the given number. If a branch update contains more commits, the usual notifications are replaced by a single notification about the number of the pushed commits.
kgb-add-project(1), kgb-client(1), kgb-client.conf(5), kgb.conf(5).
