Below is a Python code for a very simple bot that logs in into FICS, ask for a username and password that one must manually enter and then the bot will chat in channel 53, a channel for general discussion where guests can participate.
The code assume that you have a file called “random-words.txt” in /path-to/ directory. You can edit those according to your needs. The bot will randomly pick lines in the text file and send them in the 53th channel. It will do so at a rate of 1 line every 30 seconds by default, but this is adjustable.
Have fun editing and using this bot!
