hubot rocket chat adapter not responding to redis

my hubot adapter works well except for every time i started hubot, I had to reset the following items:

export ROCKETCHAT_AUTH=password
export HUBOT_YOUTUBE_API_KEY=<your token>

I get the feel hubot is not really responding to redis that i installed. I do have hubot-redis-brain installed as well. Is there any other setting I need to do in order to make it work? Or should i just re-install the whole thing? what might be the possible reason?

Please follow the instructions below - How to run hubot?

  • Change your docker-compose.yml, where it says - change it to - ROCKETCHAT_URL=rocketchat:3000. You should connect to hubot through the link in the containers.
  • Indeed, you should be using hubot-rocketchat:latest with Rocket.Chat version above 0.37

How to customize with your own scrips?

  • You have to map a volume from your host to your container. You can do this by adding volumes: to your docker-compose.yml. If you had your custom scripts inside a scripts folder, in the same directory as docker-compose.yml, you’d add it like this:

volumes: - ./scripts:/home/hubot/scripts
