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.

There's no warranty. If it breaks you get to keep both parts.



  • 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.


Trunk code is available on Github
