I extended my IRC Bot Foxbot today to allow it to run canned remote executions on behalf of users in an IRC channel. This is only a prototype or proof-of-concept. Be very careful not to allow users to inject their own commands. Foxbot must be running on the Salt Master and must be running as the same user that runs the salt-master daemon.
The code lives here: foxbot/plugins/checks.py
