Remindbot is a very simple matrix bot for leightweight reminders. It's in its early days, expect bugs, feel free to test and send feedback!
The bot is bound to a matrix user, for my usage it is
In a direct chat a (kind of) shell like interface is exposed:
notify TIMESPEC [MESSAGE]: Send the specified message at
table: Show the queued reminders
rm ID [ID [ID]…]: Delete task(s) with
help: Show a help page
The timespec is simple, these variants exist:
5: 5 seconds
5[smhd]: 5 seconds, minutes, hours, days
HH:MM: time on current day
tomorrow HH:MM: time on the next day
YYYY:mm:dd HH:MM: arbitrary day+time
24h format must be used.
The bot can be run on any computer from the command line. No special setup (e.g. reverse proxy, …) is required.
Do not run the bot in a room with more people. I want that the bot react only on mentions, but this is not implemented yet! Currently, it parses every message which would spam the chatroom. Only use the bot in direct conversations, for now.
Currently, the bot looses all queued tasks on restart. This is on the radar.
The scope of the task table must be filtered per room. Currently, it returns the whole table. Do not report this as a privacy issue, please. This will be addressed soon.
I assume there are lots of bugs in this fresh piece of software. Just write an email, or send patches to: ~firstname.lastname@example.org
