Jump to navigation Jump to search

This module allows you to monitor the activity of a specific user and/or text patterns and have the text sent to a special query window. This may be handy if you, for example, want to notice any messages containing your nickname.



This network module takes no arguments.

To add a watch entry:

/msg *watch add *! *firebot-watch
<*watch> Adding entry: [*!] watching for [*] -> [*firebot-watch]

To add a watch entry using an ExpandString:

/msg *watch add * *highlight *%nick%*
<*watch> Adding entry: [*!*@*] watching for [*%nick%*] -> [*highlight]

To set the channels that should be logged (use space as a delimiter for setting multiple sources):

/msg *watch SetSources 1 #bugs
<*watch> Sources set for Id 1.

Results should be like:

<*firebot-watch> <firebot:#bugs> New Firefox - General bug 311883 filed by

To show a list (list shows all that are being watched and dump shows them all):

/msg *watch list
/msg *watch dump

To remove entries:

/msg *watch del <id> (deletes a specific entry)
/msg *watch clear (deletes all entries)

To enable and disable (wildcard character * can be used for all):

/msg *watch enable <id | *>
/msg *watch disable <id | *>

This module can also set the amount of buffered lines while detached:

/msg *watch buffer <lines>

See ExpandString for a list of available variables which you can use in your message patterns.
