GitHub, Inc., wrote the first version of Hubot to automate our company chat room (CampFire). Hubot knew how to (Robot) deploy the site, automate a lot of tasks, and be a source of fun (ChatBot) in the company. Eventually he grew to become a formidable force in GitHub. But he led a private, messy life. So we rewrote him. Today's version of Hubot is open source, written in Coffee Script on NodeJs, and easily deployed on platforms like Heroku. More importantly, Hubot is a standardized way to share scripts between everyone's robots.
