opsdroid connector shell

A connector for opsdroid to send messages using the command line.

Note: This connector only works on unix systems. It will not work on windows, it's recommended that you download the Opsdroid Desktop App to have opsdroid running on windows.


The shell connector requires access to user input, this means you should probably set the logging not to go to the console.


  - name: shell
    # optional
    bot-name: "mybot" # default "opsdroid"

Disable Logging

It's recommended to deactivate console logging in your configuration.yaml file if you intend to use this connector.

Just add the following in your configuration file:

  console: false
