GithubHookSEChatService

A bot named Duga for chat rooms on the Stack Exchange network. Responsibilities include:

  • When used as a Github webhook, instantly informs a chatroom about the activity
  • Can make requests to Github's API every now and then to check for recent events, informs a chat room if there is activity
  • Uses the Stack Exchange API to check comments refering users to Code Review and Programmers. Posts these comments in The 2nd Monitor and The Whiteboard, respectively.
  • Listens for chat commands in Duga's Playground.

Configuration

In the directory grails-app/conf, create a file named duga.groovy

// Configurations for the bot's Stack Exchange account:
rootUrl = 'https://stackexchange.com'
email = '[email protected]'
password = 'yourpassword'

// API configuration
stackAPI = 'xxxxxxxxx'
githubAPI = 'xxxxxxxxx'
commandPrefix = '@Duga ' // chat messages that begins with this will be considered as commands

// Database configuration
adminDefaultPass = 'xxxxxxxxx' // default password for username 'admin'

dataSource {
    username = 'xxxxxxxxx'
    password = 'xxxxxxxxx'
}

Also see the bottom part of grails-app/conf/application.groovy for more database configuration options.

Import project into IntelliJ

On Mac OS X, you might get this error when trying to import the project from build.gradle:

Unsupported major.minor version 51.0 asset/pipeline/gradle/AssetPipelinePlugin : invalid plugin

A workaround is to have Gradle generate IntelliJ's files:

./gradlew idea

Select File / Open..., and select the directory of the project.

IntelliJ might still pop-up a window to import as a Gradle project, which may result in the same error. I had no choice to cancel that import, but actually everything worked fine.

If you still experience problems, this page might help: https://github.com/libgdx/libgdx/wiki/Gradle-and-Intellij-IDEA

Build and run tests

To build the project and run all tests:

./gradlew build
