Selvvir is an IRC bot for the #css channel on freenode. It replaces the previous bot, rivvles, created by Colin Aarts (aka riven or lilmonkey on freenode) which the author still provides but chose to remove from #css.
Originally, Selvvir started as an attempt to reverse engineer rivvles (for no real reason). Shortly after its inception, the source code powering rivvles was made available on github as irc-js-bot. rivvles is presumably a custom configured irc-js-bot.
Selvvir is not exactly the cleanest code, and as such is closed-source. If you want Selvvir-like functionality, see the irc-js-bot project github repository and run that instead. irc-js-bot does not offer the caniuse.com functionality of Selvvir, but it is not hard to add.
Why neon green? rivvles' favorite color was hotpink. Ask Selvvir about `hotpink.
Commands are prefixed with the ` (backtick) character to indicate to Selvvir it is being addressed:
Anything not recognized as an explicit command is assumed to be a factoid. Factoids can have spaces.
The @ character can be used to address a command's response or factoid output to another user:
`caniuse flex @ username
However, all errors are reported back as notices to the original requestor and not the addressed user. Commands with longer output also send it as a notice, so as not to spam the channel.
Some commands have flags to modify their response. Those can be placed after the command name:
Not all commands offer flags, and more than one flag can be used together in any order:
Flags a command does not recognize will be ignored.
In addition to the flags below, each command has a flag causing it to list out information about it and its flags instead of returning its
normal response. This page is built with the same information listed there.
Add or update a factoid
|r||regexp: enables regexp mode; <content> must be a sed-style (s///) substitution literal, conforming to Java regular expression syntax|
|a||alias: alias mode; create an alias to an existing factoid: <content> becomes a factoid name instead|
|!||force: this flag must be set to overwrite an existing factoid; otherwise a warning will be issued|
Delete a factoid
|!||force: enables deletion of factoids that have aliases leading to it; will also delete all aliases|
Display a list of special commands I support
|v||verbose: also lists the description for each command|
