Basic Ini login+registration system

By skitzkid on Dec 29, 2010

A quick, simple, beginner friendly snippet for ini based user registration/login management. I will expand this code when I have some spare time.


  • Place code in remotes section of your script editor.
    Register: register password Login:login password

  • Note: These commands are only accessible via Private message/Query if you type it in a channel nothing will happen

Checking if a user is logged in example: if ($readini($+($1,.ini),info,loggedin) == true) { /notice $nick You Are Already Logged In | halt }

; Ini based registration/login system v0.1 by ares
; /register username password
alias register {
  writeini $($1,.ini) info password $2
  writeini $($1,.ini) info loggedin false
; /login username password
alias login {
  if ($readini($+($1,.ini),info,password) == $2) {
    writeini $($1,.ini) info loggedin true
    notice $1 You Have Successfully Logged In.

on *:Text:`login*:?: {
  if (!$2) { /notice $nick Usage: `login password | halt }
  if ($readini($+($1,.ini),info,password) == $null) { notice $nick You have not registered. | halt }
  if ($readini($+($1,.ini),info,password) == false) { notice $nick You have not set a password. | halt }
  if ($readini($+($1,.ini),info,loggedin) == true) { notice $nick You Are Already Logged In | halt }
  login $nick $2
on *:Text:`register*:?: {
  if (!$2) { notice $nick Usage: `register password | halt }
  if ($readini($+($1,.ini),info,password) = !$null) { notice $nick Your already registered | halt }
  if ($2 = !$isalnum) { notice $nick Special characters are not supported. Characters Supported: a-z and 0 - 9 | halt }
  register $nick $2
  notice $nick You are now registered with the password: $2

The reason I'm using a new ini file for each nick is for user administration purposes. It's a matter of personal preference, There's no difference using separate ini files, and its not hard to make the script store the user files in a separate directory for tidiness.

Thanks for comments, snippet updated

It's alright, but you should advance it more so you can use commands such as

on 2:text:user command:#: {


on 3:text:admin command:#: {

This can be done with using guser and luser I believe.

Hmm, and it looks like you are writing a new ini for each user?
I would just do

writeini users.ini $nick $2


$readini(users.ini, $nick, password)

Nice script I guess... ooO( Haven't tested it )
Could come in handy...
And nice work...

Maybe add a on part/quit logout
