Hazelnut

About

This website is dedicated to the support of the Hazlenut project. Hazelnut is an IRC-bot built around the idea of using plugins to extend the functionality of the bot. Therefore, the bot is really a just a framework designed to manage plugins as well as provide some extra APIs to aid in making great plugins. This idea isn't really new, or even innovative, but it's more the idea of it and fun had creating it and working with it.
