  • hubot erase thing - erase thing from scoreboard (permanently deletes thing from memory)

  • hubot top 10 - show the top 10, with a graph of points
  • hubot score thing - check the score for and reasons for thing

Uses Hubot brain. Also exposes the following events, should you wish to hook into it to do things like print out funny gifs for point streaks:
robot.emit "plus-one", {
  name: 'Jack'
  direction: '++' # (or --)
  room: 'chatRoomAlpha'
  reason: 'being awesome'


Run the following command
$ npm install hubot-plusplus
Then to make sure the dependencies are installed:
$ npm install
To enable the script, add a hubot-plusplus entry to the external-scripts.json file (you may need to create this file).


Some of the behavior of this plugin is configured in the environment:
HUBOT_PLUSPLUS_KEYWORD - alters the word you use to ask for the points, default score. HUBOT_PLUSPLUS_REASONS - the text used for the word "reasons" when hubot lists the top-N report, default raisins.
