Projects / DarkerIRC


DarkerIRC is a Java applet which provides IRC client functionality. It was written to be highly configurable (through the parameter tags and configuration file) and still easy to install and maintain. It can connect to any server or IRC network using the binary version, which contains a self-signed certificate.

            Realname bug
            Yes, I am familiar with the bug where the realname of a user is not appearing, but it shows 'null' instead. (You can all stop mailing me now, please)

            Will be fixed soon.
