FactoCord - A Discord Factorio bot

FactoCord
What is it?

FactoCord is a Discord bot built in golang that acts as a bridge bot between your Factorio in-game chat on your server and your Discord channel.

https://github.com/FactoKit/FactoCord

Lemme know what you think of it and if you have any issues please let me know either here or on the repo's issues page.

Thank you!
How does it work?
It basically acts like a wrapper for the Factorio server, the output that you see in the console is written to a log file within the same directory as the program and then tailed to allow the program to send the in-game chat to the channel on Discord.

To allow chat messages from discord to be sent to in-game, the Standard Input uses a pipe that allows the chat to be sent as input to the console, but because of this in the current release it unfortunately doesn't allow direct input from the console window (meaning you can't type commands within the console window directly anymore); however, in a future release I will be aiming to fix this problem.

What does this mean? That the functionality to see Discord-messaged ingame won't work?

It means that you won't be able to type in a command to execute from the terminal running the headless server, that being said I have it fixed with the latest update (and after a few more bug fixes I'll release version 1.1 of the bot)

Very cool. Documentation needs a little work, and it'd be nice to see more commands, such as Factorio version. Also, is it possible to display the mod version number?

I'm agree with him :) Good job but need more docs
I'm an amateur in linux so a step by step guide of install could be really good :)
Thx

I am running a Headless server on a Win Server... Would be great if there is the same solution for windows. I think i've seen your bot running on the Redmew servers and would be happy to implement a bot to my servers too... Great job here a must have!

Hey all,

It seems as though FactoCord hasn't been worked on for a while and I decided it was time to do a bit of improvement...

FMCore, please roll this into the main project :)

Here's what is new:
Rewrote the Commands.go and main.go files to allow for arguments
Added Kick, Ban and Unban commands
Added a command to list the current commands.

you can find my fork here.
