News (from pascalpoitras, w/ custom edits)

news

/filter add news irc.FREENODE.##news !nick_newsly*+!host_yano@unaffiliated/yano/bot/rssly,!irc_privmsg *
/filter add news_interest irc.FREENODE.##news nick_newsly*+irc_privmsg,host_yano@unaffiliated/yano/bot/rssly+irc_privmsg !^(\s|\[)(Reddit [-] /r/netsec|Wired|EFF Updates|techdirt|TorrentFreak|Science Daily|Hacker News|phoronix|Google News - UK|Google News - Science|Google News - Health|Google News - World|Twitter - @BBCBreaking|BBC|The Guardian|Ars Technica|The Intercept|Canoe [-] Weird News)( \-| | |\])

##news is a channel on Freenode with a bot named newsly that display news from various sources. The first /filter command hides everything that happens on the channel except PRIVMSG from newsly. The second /filter hides every news except those from the given list.

Full list of news sources is available here. To add to the list, modify the second filter, separate them using "|".

The following trigger uses the new hook_line. You must be using 2.3-dev (weechat-devel) or higher.

/trigger add news_line line "*;irc.FREENODE.##news;irc_privmsg+nick_newsly*" "" "/.*/${tg_message_nocolor}/site_name /^\[([^]]+)\].*/${re:1}/site_name /.*/${tg_message_nocolor}/title /^[^]]+\]//title /.*/${site_name}/site_color /^([^-]+).*/${info:nick_color_name,${re:1}}/site_color /.*/${title}/url ==.*(https?://[^ ]+).*==${re:1}==url /\+/%2B/url /,/%2C/url /\!/%21/url /\*/%2A/url /.*/${re:0},url_${url}/tags ==https?://[^ ]+ .*====title /.*/[${color:${site_color}}${site_name}${color:reset}] ${title}/message/url /.*//prefix" "" "" "none"

hides the nick "newsly" and formats the news to look nicer, this version keeps the URLs and the timestamps (non-powerline version)

/set weechat.bar.nicklist.conditions "${nicklist} && ${buffer.full_name} != irc.FREENODE.##news"

disables nicklist in the ##news channel.

Highlight Monitor (from pascalpoitras)

/eval /set weechat.startup.command_after_plugins "${weechat.startup.command_after_plugins};/buffer add highmon"

/buffer_autoset add core.highmon title Highlight Monitor

/trigger add highmon_like print ""
/trigger set highmon_like conditions "${tg_highlight} == 1 && ${tg_displayed} == 1 && ${buffer.local_variables.type} == channel && ${tg_tags} =~ ,irc_privmsg,"
/trigger set highmon_like command "/print -newbuffer highmon -tags ${tg_tags} ${color:${info:nick_color_name,${server}}}${cut:4,${color:${weechat.color.chat_prefix_more}}${weechat.look.prefix_align_more},${server}}${color:${info:nick_color_name,${channel}}}${channel}\t${if:${tg_tags} !~ ,irc_action,?${weechat.look.quote_nick_prefix}${tg_prefix}${color:reset}${weechat.look.quote_nick_suffix}:${tg_prefix}${color:reset}} ${tg_message}"

This trigger create a new buffer named highmon. This buffer will contain all the highlighted message from all the channels you are on. This is similar to the highmon.pl script but without any options.

Highlights

/set weechat.look.highlight kei
/buffer_autoset add weechat.notify.irc.FREENODE.##news highlight
/buffer_autoset add irc.FREENODE.##news highlight_words <news you want to be notified of, perhaps some local area names>
/buffer_autoset add irc.IM.&bitlbee highlight_words "New request"

Triggers

/trigger add upgrade_scripts signal day_changed
/trigger set upgrade_scripts command "/script update;/wait 10s /script upgrade"

The trigger upgrade_scripts will update the local script cache and then upgrade all the installed scripts at midnight. (from pascalpoitras)
