jsb-udp - The JSONBOT udp program


JSONBOT is a remote event-driven framework for building bots that talk JSON to each other over XMPP. jsb-udp can send txt in a udp packet to the bot which in his/her turn sends it to a channel.


Sometimes you want to have the output of a program send to a channel or conference the bot is participating in, for example logfiles (if they dont accumulate too fast). JSONBOT provides a plugin that can do this with the use of UDP packets send to the bot. This program is the client part and can be used to send txt pipelined into it to a UDP port on the listening bot. This bot will then forward the txt to the channel provided with the -p, --printto option.


Usage: jsb-udp [options]

--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-p PATH, --printto=PATH
channel/user to print to
Specify a config file
-s, --save save to config file
