NAME ^

IM::Engine::Plugin::Dispatcher - Path::Dispatcher ♥ IM::Engine

SYNOPSIS ^

    package TimeBot;
    use Path::Dispatcher::Declarative -base;

    on qr/date|time/ => sub { localtime };

    IM::Engine->new(
        interface => {
            protocol => 'REPL',
        },
        plugins => {
            Dispatcher => {
                dispatcher => 'TimeBot',
            },
        },
    )->run;

DESCRIPTION ^

Path::Dispatcher is a pretty good way of running some code based on some string input. My personal use case for Path::Dispatcher was for IM or IRC bots, so this is me eating my own dog food.

This module is meant to be extended to improve Path::Dispatcher + IM::Engine goodness. For example, the IM::Engine::Plugin::Dispatcher::404 plugin extends your dispatcher with a 404 (command not found) error.

It is currently alpha quality with serious features missing and is rife with horrible bugs. I'm releasing it under the "release early, release often" doctrine. Backwards compatibility may be broken in subsequent releases. Or by IM::Engine releases!
