cobalt2-installer - Initialize a Bot::Cobalt instance


  cobalt2-installer [ --rcfile=PATH ]


A simple walk-through installer for fresh Bot::Cobalt instances.

Interactively asks a few questions to prepare a rcfile and associated Bot::Cobalt configuration files; language sets and essential skeleton directories are also copied to the bot home directory specified during the install process.

Every Bot::Cobalt instance has its own rcfile and directory; to initialize and run multiple instances, specify a new rcfile:

  # Initialize FredBot:
  cobalt2-installer --rcfile=${HOME}/cobalts/FredBot.rc
  # Start the newly-configured instance:
  cobalt2 --rcfile=${HOME}/cobalts/FredBot.rc
