SinusBot Scripting Engine

Introduction

This scripting-documentation lists all available modules and their methods implemented in the current SinusBot Scripting Engine.
Check out our guide in the SinusBot Documentation for explanations on how to get started.

The code used to generate this documentation can be found here on GitHub. Contributions are welcome!

There is also a documentation available for the command-library that was introduced with sinusbot-1.0.0-alpha.

generic

registerPlugin

This is the first and only top-level function that should be called in your script, everything else will be done in the function that is passed to it.

registerPlugin(manifest: Manifest, mainFunction: mainFunction)
Parameters
manifest (Manifest) The manifest determines which features are available to the script and contains metadata and variables that will be shown in the web interface.
mainFunction (mainFunction) If the script is activated this function is called when the scripts are loaded. The function receives three parameters, the first one ( _ ) is deprecated and should not be used anymore.
Example
registerPlugin({
    name: 'Demo Script',
    version: '1.0',
    description: 'This example actually does nothing',
    author: 'Author <author[at]example.com>',
    vars: []
}, function(_, config, meta) {
    // your code goes here
});

Manifest

Manifest

Type: object

Properties
name (string) : Short name of your script
author (string) : Your name and your email address in the form of: your name <your-email@example.com>
description (string) : A longer description - tell the user what exactly your script does
version (string) : Start with something like 1.0 and increase it with every release
autorun (boolean?) : Set to true, if you want the script to be run on every instance, without the option to disable it.
backends (Array<string>?) : Per default scripts will only be available on TS3 instances. If your script supports Discord (or in the future maybe other backends) as well, you have to specify this explicitly by setting this variable to an array containing all backends: backends: ["ts3", "discord"]
enableWeb (boolean?) : If your script required own web content, you can set enableWeb to true and put files into the ./scripts/scriptname/html directory. After restart, the script title will be clickable and lead to an index.html inside that html-directory you just created.

From there you have access to the localStorage variables containing the login and may communicate with the bot api from your own pages.

engine (string?) : Sets the required engine version (bot version). This uses Semantic Versioning . Example: engine: ">= 0.9.16"
hidden (boolean?) : Hides the script from the settings page. Should be used together with autorun.

Hidden scripts can not have variables (vars), since they'd never be shown and thus not configurable.

requiredModules (Array<string>?) : An array of protected modules (i.e. 'http' or 'db') that the script requires.
vars (Array<object>?) : More information about the usage of variables can be found here .
voiceCommands (Array<string>?) : This parameter is only used for the speech recognition feature and may contain one or more strings that are to be detected for the given script. You can find more details on how to use it here: Speech Recognition

mainFunction

mainFunction(_: object?, config: object, meta: Manifest)

Type: Function

Parameters
_ (object?) This parameter is deprecated and should not be used anymore.
config (object) Configuration of the plugin that the user set from within the web interface (given you have added anything to the vars field of your script manifest).
meta (Manifest) Manifest as specified in registerPlugin.

http

This module is protected. This means that you need to add 'http' to requiredModules in your script's Manifest in registerPlugin in order to use it - like shown here:

registerPlugin({
    name: 'Demo http basic Script',
    version: '1.0.0',
    description: 'This example script sends a http request.',
    author: 'Author <author@example.com>',
    //...
    // define the protected modules that you require:
    requiredModules: ['http'],
    //...
    vars: []
}, (_, config, meta) => {
    const engine = require('engine');
    // and then you can require and use the module in here:
    const http = require('http');
    
    // send request
    http.simpleRequest({
        'method': 'GET',
        'url': 'https://example.com',
        'timeout': 6000,
    }, function (error, response) {
        if (error) {
            engine.log("Error: " + error);
            return;
        }
        
        if (response.statusCode != 200) {
            engine.log("HTTP Error: " + response.status);
            return;
        }
        
        // success!
        engine.log("Response: " + response.data.toString());
    });
});

Examples can be found under simpleRequest.

http
Static Members
simpleRequest(config, callback)

net

This module is protected. This means that you need to add 'net' to requiredModules in your script's Manifest in registerPlugin in order to use it.

The net module allows you to connect to any TCP/UDP port or ws (websocket) and send raw data. If you just need to send a http request then you should definitely use the http module instead.

net
Since: 0.9.16
Example
const engine = require('engine');
const net = require('net');

// connect to a tcp port
const conn = net.connect({
    host: '127.0.0.1',
    port: 80
}, err => {
    // log connection errors if any
    if (err) {
        engine.log(err);
    }
});

// start listening for data
conn.on('data', data => {
    engine.log('received data');
    engine.log(data.toString());
})

// write data if connection is available
if (conn) {
    // write data
    conn.write("GET / HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: localhost\r\n\r\n");
} else {
    engine.log('connection unavailable');
}
Static Members
connect(params, callback)

ws

This module is protected. This means that you need to add 'ws' to requiredModules in your script's Manifest in registerPlugin in order to use it.

The ws module allows you to start a websocket server. If you want to connect to a websocket server instead then take look at the net module.

ws
Since: 0.9.20
Example
// ### SinusBot script: ###

const engine = require('engine');
const event = require('event');
const ws = require('ws');

// listen for connections
event.on('ws.connect', id => {
    engine.log('new websocket connection; id ' + id);
    // broadcast data to all connected clients
    ws.broadcast(1, { blubb: 'blubb' });
});
// listen for disconnections
event.on('ws.disconnect', id => {
    engine.log('websocket connection disconnected; id ' + id);
});
// listen for data
event.on('ws.data', (id, type, data) => {
    engine.log('ws.data: id ' + id + '; data: ' + data.toString());
    // respond with data
    ws.write(id, type, data.toString());
});
// ### Client Side (served html files via the enableWeb script option): ###

var proto = (window.location.protocol == 'https:') ? 'wss' : 'ws';
var conn = new WebSocket(proto + "://" + document.location.host + "/api/v1/b/" + botId + "/i/" + instanceId + "/ws");
conn.onclose = function (evt) {
console.log('close', evt);
    alert('Closed.');
};
conn.send(JSON.stringify({ type: 'ping' }));
conn.onmessage = function (evt) {
    var data = JSON.parse(evt.data);
};
Static Members
write(connectionId, messageType, message)
broadcast(messageType, message)
close(connectionId)

db

This module is protected. This means that you need to add 'db' to requiredModules in your script's Manifest in registerPlugin in order to use it.

Use additional parameters to exec / query whenever you use untrusted/unknown data, as those will automatically be escaped and avoid SQL injection.

db
Since: 0.9.16.4
Example
var db = require('db');
var engine = require('engine');
var helpers = require('helpers');
var dbc = db.connect({ driver: 'mysql', host: '127.0.0.1', username: 'demo', password: 'blah', database: 'foo' }, function(err) {
    if (err) {
         engine.log(err);
    }
});
if (dbc) dbc.exec("INSERT INTO blah (foo, foo2) VALUES (?, ?)", 'bar', 'bar2');
if (dbc) dbc.query("SELECT * FROM blah", function(err, res) {
    if (!err) {
         res.forEach(function(row) {
             engine.log(helpers.toString(row.foo));
         });
    }
});

fs

graphics

This module is protected. This means that you need to add 'graphics' to requiredModules in your script's Manifest in registerPlugin in order to use it.

The best example on how to use the graphics module is the Avatar banner script by Filtik.
