The project has 2 components:

  • An OSGI based IRC bot, called JerkBot
  • An IRC-Client(development halted for a year or so)

Originally, the project was supposed to only provide an IRC client based on JerkLib.


JerkBot started as an exercise with JPA and OSGI. After playing a little bit with JerkLib, I wrote a bot within a day and I thought why not share? :-)

This is a one day effort with 4 rewrites, one day each, it's not bug free, but I did try :-). The code is being patched time to time.

About this site

The site only provides a quick overview(sometime very technical) of the bot features, browse the manual for more details please.
