@nzlosh In my app location, I’ve created backend directory and cloned the following repo - https://github.com/errbotio/err-backend-slackv3 and then installed via pip install -r ./backend/err-backend-slackv3/requirements.txt Updated the config.py

BOT_EXTRA_BACKEND_DIR="mypath/backend”

And started the app, now getting this error.

I'm a little stuck trying to figure out how to configure errbot to load modules on start-up. Can anybody point me in the right direction? I'm aware of the tools/plugin-gen.py script, but that appears to only create repos.json with public plugins.

I was deploying the plug-in with the container, but decoupled them, so the mod is loaded dynamically. Just trying to get it to load automatically on start up.

Thanks!

@sijis
@bergbrains you need to put the python/plugin code inside the plugins directory path defined in your config.py file
1 reply
There is a cli option that can create a bare plugin for you. I don't remember offhand but it's osmething like errbot --new-plugin
As long as that code is in that plugin path when errbot bootsup it'll detect it and load it.
Mark Sullivan
@marksull
You have two options: 1) Your docker entrypoint script should pull the module into the plug-in directory within the container prior to your script starting errbot or 2) install the module in a persistent volume outside the docker container which is then mapped to the plug-in directory. In both these cases errbot will see the plug-in and load it.

Hi. Is it possible to have command aliases?
e.g. I have a command like pagerduty_status and I'd like to have a short alias like pd_status for it.
What's the recommended way to do it?
Sijis Aviles
@sijis
@alpinweis there is an alias plugin that should do that already.
I've also created a stub method in the past too.
alpinweis
@alpinweis
@sijis what do you mean by a stub method? do you have examples?
alpinweis
@alpinweis
also, when using the Alias plugin, what's the right way to add aliases during startup? I assume it's probably via running a specific errbot cli in my Dockerfile?
Sijis Aviles
@sijis
For stub method, basically I just created a new method that called the existing one (hard to type on phone, but something like)..

def myoldcmd(..): pass
def newcmd(...): self.myoldcmd(...)
I haven't used that plugin ina while, but if I recall it's stored in the backend (by default a $pluginname.db file). So upon startup the plugin is loaded and the commands should be available
Sijis Aviles
@sijis
If in docker/kube, you may want to use an external backend so that info is stored in a db and not local files
alpinweis
@alpinweis

In my case the long command name has to accept args/options, so the short alias (or the stub method) needs to be declared so that it can accept those options too.
e.g. this is how I imagine I'd define a stub:


    @arg_botcmd("-u", "--user", type=str, help=user name")
    @arg_botcmd("-p", "--project", type=str, help="project name")
    def pagerduty_status(self, msg, project=None, user=None):
      ......


    @arg_botcmd("-u", "--user", type=str, help=user name")
    @arg_botcmd("-p", "--project", type=str, help="project name")
    def pd_status(self, msg, project=None, user=None):
      self._bot._execute_and_send(cmd="pagerduty_status", args=...)

which looks like a lot of duplication.
From a quick view at the Alias plugin I'm not sure the !alias command supports flags with arbitrary values.

I tried something like

   pd_status = pagerduty_status

but that did not seem to work.

I just released errbot version 6.1.9!
Versions are on pypi.org and dockerhub.

Next release, is to focus on slack. Removing what's there and including the v3 version. :)

Thansk for the new release!
I'm not sure about how to report this but in page: https://pypi.org/project/errbot/6.1.9/ the link in 'supports markdown extras formatting' (https://pythonhosted.org/Markdown/extensions/extra.html) seems to be not woking.

Pypi previously supported the syntax in the readme. That's new then. Thanks. I'll take a look at it

I'm in favour of keeping slackv3 outside of the errbot core repo so the backend developers can remain autonomous and apply fixes/features on different release cycles to the core.

If we must merge slackv3 for other reasons, I'd like to see the other backends merge into the core also for consistency sake, at least mattermost and discord (gitter perhaps).

A couple of other backends that'd be good to have in the errbot.io organisation would be MSTeam, Matrix and Keybase (I'm not sure if such a backend would fit with Errbot's architecture).

I'm keeping it out of the main repo. My intent is to include in docker file and update documentarion
sijis
@sijis:matrix.org
[m]
And remove the existing slack that are already in the repo
I should had been more clear on that statement.
I do believe having the backends out of the core is a good thing long term, especially if it's heavy iteration one (like slack is)
Carlos
@nzlosh
Oh great! Sorry for the misunderstanding. Good to see the official docker image getting updated. Last time I checked, there were a few unofficial images and rroemhild's defacto image hadn't been updated to the latest errbot release.

I just did a clean installation of errbot 6.1.9 in a virtualenv using Python3.7 and got this error when running errbot -h. Has anyone else seen this?

@nzlosh
The module graphlib-backport==1.0.3 was missing from the virtualenv. I'm not sure how pip handles dependency resolution when processing wheels, but my current guess is the errbot wheel was built on a version > 3.9 so graphlib-backport wasn't included. I'll need to dig into how all this works under the hood.
Carlos
@nzlosh
@sijis:matrix.org Do you build and upload the wheel manually to pypi? I can't seem to find any reference to it in github actions. From what I've read, one way to address this issue would be to build two versions of the wheel, one that is tagged with py37.py38 built using py3.7 or py3.8 and another tagged with py39.py310 built using py3.9 or py3.10. I'm not sure if the original wheel tagged with py3 would need to be taken down or if pip will select the most specific version first.
