NAME

ibid.ini - Configuration file for Ibid

DESCRIPTION

ibid.ini contains all the configuration for an Ibid bot.
A complete description of the contents of this file is out of the scope of this manpage. For more details see the Ibid documentation: http://ibid.omnia.za.net/docs/
Lines beginning with # are considered to be comments and ignored. To use a # symbol in an option (e.g. an IRC channel name), quote the option with double-quotes, e.g. channels="#ibid",
This file will be written to by the bot when configuration settings are altered online. It can also be edited manually and a running bot told to "reload config". Manual edits and comments will be preserved when the bot modifies its own configuration, provided that they have not been edited since bot start-up or the last config reload.

SECTIONS

auth

Settings related to permissions and authentication. Permissions listed in auth.permissions are granted to all users unless revoked by source or account.

sources

Sources are Ibid connections to an IM service. They range from IRC networks to the bot's built-in HTTP server.
Each source is configured in a section named after the source. The source name will define the driver that the source should use, unless a type option is provided.
Sources can be disabled by setting disabled=True.

plugins

Plugin configuration. Each plugin is configured within a section named after the plugin.
cachedir
The directory that temporary files (such as downloaded data), useful to be the bot but expendable, is stored in.
core.autoload
If True, all plugins not explicitly ignored will be loaded. (Note that some plugins mark themselves as non-auto-loadable). Defaults to True.
core.load
The list of plugins (or plugin.Processors) to load.
core.noload
The list of plugins (or plugin.Processors) to ignore and not load.
core.names
The names that the bot should respond to.
core.ignore
Nicks that the bot should completely ignore (e.g. other bots).
