In the time since the last version was released and the latest news on this new update, there have been some improvements to the chat logger and a few QoL changes as well.
This is what the setup looks like now:
The gist of it, the change log, is as follows:
- Modified user name colors to be accurate versus just black of white
- Partial implementation of chat badge icons
- IRC function now grabs and parses all Twitch information from chat messages
- Chat logger saves window dimension on close and reloads it accurately
-> Can be modified directly through config file upon next window open
- Program correctly shuts down upon main window closure
For those who wish to continue using the free edition, there will be a new release that will fix some of the errors in that version. What is the point of having that version when there are some potential bugs that crash the program, right?
An IRC-based chat bot API for connecting to `Twitch.tv`s chat room services. The API is grounded in the C# programming language which means a basic level of the programming language is necessary for creating your own plugins. The base program includes three vanilla plugins which can be modified at will to get started: BasicCommands, lab, and OnLoad (internal name: Plugins).
There contains two forms of function: a GUI which contains a chat logger with basic colors for color-keying out the background as well as font selection acquired from the Windows fonts directory. Then a console version which enables direct input into the stream feed. Both versions contain at least a basic function for viewing a console that portrays all the messages coming through the network, e.g. which users have joined or left.
Disabling plugins takes the action of removing it from its root folder. Furthermore there is a crude method for compiling code into plugins using a C# v5 compiler which is directed toward within the `compile.cmd` file located within. README files explain the remainder of the information necessary for the function of the included programs.
IRC Network API -- An API already plugged into the IRC networking code with programmed events for each basic process a chat message goes through.
Plugins now are fitted for the GUI version.
Changing plugins back to fitted for console requires changing the assembly back to the twitchbot.dll instead of the CoreWPF.dll.
GUI properly loads plugins and reports their titles and version upon successful bot login.
This update is for fixing the GUI chat auto scrolling from stationary when text scrolls beyond the window size to scrolling to the latest chat message. Do note this will mean cropping the vertical scroll bar may be necessary.
This version underwent a change when I realized that I could not easily add a plugin that used a GUI. In this case, I desired to add a chat logger. Since this seemed farfetched, I simply reformatted the code for this feature to work, and added a little functionality such as font family changing and the like.
It is not currently as robust as other alternatives--it does not have icons for subs or moderators--though it stands as a basic chat logger for now.
The future of this project may involve me adding a few more plugins into another release when it comes time to improve usability and QoL.
The console and GUI versions are contained in their own directories.
