How to use dingding's features

Small guide on working with dingding.

dingding has a couple of features, all of them accessible through commands:

 

\erldoc module:function/arity

 

Searches the erlang documentation for module:function/arity

 

\twit <searchstring>

 

Searches twitter for your <searchstring> and returns at most 2 tweets.

 

\@username

 

Shows the last 2 tweets of 'username'

 

\def <searchstring>

 

Searches DuckDuckGo for a definition of <searchstring>

 

\imdb <moviename>

 

Looks for a movie on IMDB and gives you info on the found movie: Rating, URL and simple plot description

 

dingding also reacts to URLs:

 

  • If the URL is a the url of a single tweet, it will display this tweet.
  • If the URL is a http page that contains a title, it will display this title.
  • If the URL is longer than 100 chars, it will get shortened and posted to the channel.
  • If the URL is a IMDB url, it will display the same info as the \imdb command but without the URL (because you obviously already have that).
  • All URLs are collected in an RSS feed: http://users.telenet.be/gertm/yflrss.xml
