I have been working on an IRC chat bot off and on for little over a month now. Up until now most of the results of this development have been for a framework to support future features for the bot. One of the long term goals I had was to create a web interface for a chat log that was searchable and linkable. Last thursday I stopped in the Dallas hackerspace’s IRC channel (#dprg) and noticed they had a nice php web page for their chat log. They directed me to this site. Which I then adapted to work with my Java based bot.
The end result is that while it is still very much still in development and uptime is not guaranteed, we have a web interface for our chat logs now: http://portal.hive13.org/irclogger/index.php
If anyone is interested in looking over the current code for the chat bot, it is available here: https://code.google.com/p/hive13jircbot/
As always there are about 15 or so of us that idle in the Hive13 IRC chat room on freenode.net in #hive13 . We may not respond immediately but if you hang around someone is usually willing to answer your question or to just chat.
