Just something I've been curious about. I've been messing a fair bit with some of my own scripts, and in some cases, getting sent an IM would be useful to let me know when a task is done.
So, here's what I need:
- the ability to set account information in a text file
- It'd be okay if I can designate only a single recipient, or set recipients in the config file
- at the very least, jabber support
- Be able to be controlled via standard shell commands - for example I should be able to pipe a message output into the program for example
sh foo.sh|climprog -recipient
should send the output of foo.txt via the I'm programme to a set recipient on the account's contact list.
Anything that fits the bill?
