OpenStack PTG Bot

ptgbot is the bot that PTG room moderators use to surface what's currently happening at the event. Commands follow the following format:


From that information the bot builds a static webpage with discussion topics currently discussed ("now") and an indicative set of discussion topics coming up next ("next").

Please note that:

  • There can only be one "now" topic at a time. If multiple topics are discussed at the same time in various corners of the room, they should all be specified in a single "now" command.
  • In order to ensure that information is current, entering a "now" command wipes out any "next" entry for the same room. You might want to refresh those after entering a "now" topic.

Copy config.ini.sample to config.ini:

cp config.ini.sample config.ini

Edit config.ini contents, for example:


In one terminal, run the bot:

tox -evenv -- ptgbot -d config.ini

Join that channel and give a command to the bot:

@swift now discussing ring placement

(note, the bot currently only takes commands from Freenode identified users)

In another terminal, start the webserver:

cd html && python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Open the web page in a web browser:
