NOTE: Development has moved to pyrcb2. pyrcb is no longer under active development, except for bug fixes.

pyrcb is a simple, self-contained, extendable library for building IRC bots. It isn’t a full implementation of IRC, but rather provides everything needed to easily create bots.

pyrcb is compatible with Python 2.7 and Python 3.1 or higher. SSL/TLS support requires at least Python 2.7.9 or Python 3.2 (see connect()).

The current version of pyrcb is 1.14.5, which was released on 2017-03-21. See the changelog for more information.

Source code for pyrcb (including this documentation) is available at
