Tiny Tiny IRC is an open source AJAX-powered IRC client. The idea behind this being that you don't need either client software or even a stable network connection to stay connected to IRC, just keep the site opened to see new messages.
You can also use Android client to stay connected on the go, all without slow pesky reconnects because of mobile data connection instability.
Please note that at this point I don't do regular user support for tt-irc. If you can't fix potential issues using provided source while preferably filing pull requests to upstream, just use something else. Consider what is provided development codebase which #worksforme.
- Supports multiple users and multiple IRC network connections per user
- Has basic IRC client functionality and some additional niceties
- Supports interface translations (work in progress)
- Supports WebKit notifications
- Draws the unread counter on a tab icon
- Can be easily styled and themed with user CSS
- Uses AJAX (with faux-PUSH updates) for fast and responsive operation
- Free software, licensed under GNU GPL
- Android client
- HTTP server (anything that can run PHP will work, for example Apache)
- PHP5 (requires compiled-in support for iconv, PostgreSQL and JSON functions)
- Java (see JavaDependencies) to run backend connection server (see RunningConnectionDaemon).
- PostgreSQL 8.3+ (MySQL is not supported because of JDBC unicode and other issues, don't enable it).
- Any modern browser should work fine.
