NAME

       ibid.ini - Configuration file for Ibid

DESCRIPTION

       ibid.ini contains all the configuration for an Ibid bot.

       A complete description of the contents of this file is out of the scope
       of  this  manpage.   For  more  details  see  the  Ibid  documentation:
       http://ibid.omnia.za.net/docs/

       Lines  beginning  with # are considered to be comments and ignored.  To
       use a # symbol in an option (e.g.  an  IRC  channel  name),  quote  the
       option with double-quotes, e.g.  channels="#ibid",

       This file will be written to by the bot when configuration settings are
       altered online.  It can also be edited manually and a running bot  told
       to  "reload  config".  Manual edits and comments will be preserved when
       the bot modifies its own configuration, provided  that  they  have  not
       been edited since bot start-up or the last config reload.

SECTIONS

   auth
       Settings related to permissions and authentication.  Permissions listed
       in auth.permissions are granted to all users unless revoked  by  source
       or account.

   sources
       Sources  are  Ibid  connections  to an IM service.  They range from IRC
       networks to the bot's built-in HTTP server.

       Each source is configured in a section named  after  the  source.   The
       source name will define the driver that the source should use, unless a
       type option is provided.

       Sources can be disabled by setting disabled=True.

   plugins
       Plugin configuration.  Each plugin is configured within a section named
       after the plugin.

       cachedir
              The  directory  that  temporary files (such as downloaded data),
              useful to be the bot but expendable, is stored in.

       core.autoload
              If True, all plugins not  explicitly  ignored  will  be  loaded.
              (Note  that  some plugins mark themselves as non-auto-loadable).
              Defaults to True.

       core.load
              The list of plugins (or plugin.Processors) to load.

       core.noload
              The list of plugins (or plugin.Processors)  to  ignore  and  not
              load.

       core.names
              The names that the bot should respond to.

       core.ignore
              Nicks that the bot should completely ignore (e.g. other bots).
