Arsenic is a bot written in Haskell by deviant-garde. It is one of the first bots developed for dAmn written in a functional programming language, confirmed to run on both Windows and Linux (Mac OS X and other Unix-like systems pending testing).


While currently under heavy development, Arsenic is planned to in particular:

  • be able to load Haskell code dynamically to create plugins (might require GHC)
  • make it easy to write plugins that serve as a custom client for the general backend
  • other impressive things like conjure up milkshakes and let your best friend allow you to date his hot sister
  • the above is probably not feasible

Arsenic's currently implemented features, however, are:

  • basic features like an API for creating plugins and modifying the settings
  • an API for creating documentation for commands (through the Documentation monad and various related functions/types)
  • most of the dAmn protocol is implemented


There's a GitHub repository for Arsenic here.


Releases pending. The latest version is unfinished, but is still operational and can be downloaded from the GitHub repository or pulled with the git client.
