Fork me on GitHub Eggdrop Development

How do I get the latest Eggdrop v1.8.x source code?

As of November 2015, eggdrop has migrated to GitHub. Now, you can follow these steps:
  1. First, create a directory called eggdrop1.8 and cd into it. Then, type: git clone
  2. To update your bot in the future, from the eggdrop1.8 directory type: git pull origin v1.8

Want a snaphost of the source code instead?
