FritzBot-Emu is the successor project of the now retired FritzBot. It will attempt to reimplement some of its functionality in BoxMatrix-Bot. All implemented functionality is intended to behave as it did in FritzBot.

This is work in progress and in a pretty early stage!

FritzBot-Emu can respond to commands from within the channel or via private message to BoxMatrix-Bot,

All FritzBot-Emu commands start with an exclamation mark !.


One of the most powerful features of FritzBot-Emu is the FritzBot-Aliases database.
Aliases are virtual user defined commands. In FritzBot everyone was allowed to define or modify aliases.
For security reasons FritzBot-Emu will only provide read only access to the FritzBot-Aliases.
Once an alias is defined it could be called like every other command !<aliasname>.
Curretly there are 385 aliases in the FritzBot-Aliases database, a few don't work yet due to missing target commands.
