This is a helper Redmine plugin for the Orangutan Jabber bot.

Orangutan is a Jabber/XMPP bot written in Perl. The main goal when developing Orangutan was to implement natural language interface for time tracking. The idea resulted into a flexible, extendable bot platform with a unique architecture allowing to ask questions, build dialogues, act on events, remind, suggest etc. The Orangutan natural language interface appeared to allow much more than usual computer user interfaces.

  • MySQL;
  • XMPP4R.
Features provided by the plugin in addition to assisting Orangutan:
  • Adds start time and end time to time entries;
  • Adds field "Jabber ID" to user account settings.

Installation notes

  • Copy "Redmine" directory to #{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/plugins and rename it to "orangutan".
  • Run: rake db:migrate:plugins RAILS_ENV=production
  • Create a Jabber account for Redmine.
  • Copy redmonkey.yml into #{RAILS_ROOT}/config directory and change it (put new Jabber account credentials there and set "orangutan" to JID of Orangutan (which was specified in /etc/orangutan.conf)).
