Passbot: A Gitter Logging Bot

Disappointed by Gitter’s lack of downloadable, deep-searchable, archive of logs, I put my trusty ZNC bouncer up to the task of maintaining a permanent connection to Gitter’s IRC bridge. The bouncer can then be told to join any public channel, and will log everything to disk. Further (and shared) archival can easily be set up that would store any chat’s logs in S3 buckets, Dropbox accounts, Google Drive, remote FTP or SSH hosts, etc.

If you want your public Gitter chatroom to be logged using this “bot”, send me an email at passbot@passcod.name.
