What is rhubot?

rhubot allows you to call arbitrary, long-running ruby scripts from Campfire via Hubot. Once the script is finished executing it will post its result back into the campfire room where it was called.

rhubot makes Hubot play nice with Ruby.

Why not just write coffeescript?

I have an existing library of ruby scripts that automate many things around the office that I’d like to utilize more directly from Hubot.

I dig coffeescript but I dig ruby more.

What do I use it for?

I use rhubot to automate a ton of tasks such as gathering release notes from JIRA and deploying them to our website.

Where do I get it?


How do I install?

You’ll need a working installation of Hubot connected to Campfire.

See Setup instructions.
