Sputnik is a Python IRC bouncer written using asyncio and backed by Redis. It is intended as a lightweight, zero-configuration bouncer capable of deployment on cloud providers such as Heroku. Sputnik is written in pure Python, so adding custom functionality is relatively straightforward.
- Automatic Network Reconnection
- Channel Saver
- Buffered Message History
- Multi-Client Connections
You can easily deploy a Sputnik instance on Heroku using the button below.
Alternately, you can manually create and deploy your own Heroku app, or run Sputnik on your own computer or server. To do so requires a Python 3.4 interpreter and Redis (optional), if you want persistence between restarts or crashes.
git submodule update --init --recursive cd docs && make dirhtml && cd _build/dirhtml python -m SimpleHTTPServer
