Description

The sopel IRC bot is a fully featured Python-powered IRC bot that can be found at https://github.com/sopel-irc. This puppet module serves to install and configure the bot.

Not all configuration options are included as of the initial release, however pull requests are welcome if you need another module added - just add the option to the parameters to the init.pp file, and then use it in the configuration template file.
