1libPurple core-answerscripts plugin
2 Framework for hooking scripts to received messages for various libpurple clients
4This simple plugin just passes every single message received by any libPurple-based client (pidgin,finch) to sript(s) in user's home directory... So you can add various hooks to your pidgin or finch without need of writing and compiling own C plugin or messing with buggy perl plugin and restarting client after each change in plugin.
6There are already few sample (answer)scripts in purple directory, so you can check how easy it is to write some script for pidgin or finch...
9The libpurple header files are needed to compile the plugin.
11Building & installation:
13To build and install :
14 You can compile the plugin using
15 $ make
16 and install it with
17 $ make install
18 This will install it in ~/.purple/plugins so that only the user who install it can use it.
19 $ make user
20 Install main script and sample answerscripts to ~/.purple/answerscripts.d/
22To install it for everybody on your computer,
23 $ make
24 $ su
25 # make install PREFIX="/path/to/pidgin" (this command as root user)
26 generally /path/to/pidgin is /usr or /usr/local. If you don't know the path then you can find out using
27 $ whereis pidgin
28 and look for the part before "/lib/pidgin".
