MudBot - Wtf Is That?

Postby apathy » Sat Feb 27, 2016 8:15 am

MudBot is a project that is just barely starting (as of February 2016). Currently the GitHub is at https://github.com/RJCo/MudBot and we have an email address at majormudbot@gmail.com

Other than that, there's nothing but hopes and dreams. Hopefully this page will be changed soon with more information!

Maybe we can get some collaboration going with the ReMud Server.

Looking at the source listed, it's in C#. It looks like MudBot is using an COTS for the terminal display, which may or may not be good, I just curious how the pure text is extracted to make decisions.

Pretty sure he was still experimenting with the different console options. Apathy just started a new job like a week ago so he's a little distracted from this at the moment.

This one looked pretty good for integrating VT100 / Ansi protocol, it could use some optimization but might be viable. https://sourceforge.net/projects/ackterm/

The project used for the terminal piece was just a stand-in for now, like Syntax said. It surprisingly didn't take much to get it to work, and it even manages the ANSI stripping to give the rest of the code plaintext. So, so far it's working fine, but a better/less annoying codebase would be great improvement :) Next time I get around to toying with the term side of the project, I'll definitely take a look at ackterm!
