eZ8 IRC bot
« on: November 21, 2014, 01:30:07 pm »
I am writing a bot that will allow IRC users to take control of my eZ8 computer. The eZ8 computer will be hooked up to the serial port on my host machine and a node.js script will take care of relaying data from IRC to the eZ8.

Follow the progress here:

Sounds interesting! Will it be like that you input hex or something?

No, you cannot program it because it is a flash-based micro-controller and you could easily wear out the flash if someone were to spam the chat with code. You will be able to access the shell though.

Well, that sounds pretty cool. Make it control some hardware or something?

Thanks, eeems :) I have taken a brief look at it. I don't quite understand how everything works yet, but I'm sure I'll figure out how to use it!

Feel free to hit me up on IRC for an explanation of it sometime.

A friend of mine has a cool scrolly LED sign. I'm gonna make the irc bot so it forwards messages to serial w/o modification, so he can display irc messages on the sign!
