Chessa has a pluggable database interface, which provides a common interface for database-related functionality. Currently, the following plugins exist:
- Pronouns: Simple database mapping users to their pronouns. Presets are available for male, female, and neutral.
- Time: Timezone and current time for users.
Plugins are accessible via
.<plugin>, with the following subcommands:
findlooks up the requested user.
setallows the user to set data for the particular plugin.
helpprovides documentation for the plugin.
If no subcommand is provided,
find is assumed. For example,
.time US/Eastern gives the time in that timezone.
The weather command set consists of
.location. All commands take a query string and, optionally, a semicolon (
;) followed by a country designator. This designator will constrain the query to the given country, in cases where an ambiguous query may return an unexpected result (e.g.
.weather hell might return the weather for Hellin, Spain, whereas
.weather hell;no will return the weather for Hell, Norway).
.f returns today’s forecast,
.f1 returns tomorrow’s forecast, and
.f3 returns (via PM) the forecast for the three days following today. Note that the forecast will change over at 00:00 local time.
.location stores the provided location for the user, so as to allow future inquiries to omit a query string.
.choosereturns a randomly-chosen entry from a list, delimited by a comma followed by a space.
.unicodereturns information on the given Unicode sequence. Supports combining characters.
.uninamereturns information on the given Unicode named sequence.
