Full Article Attached Building The IRC Client

Tuesday September 7th, 1999

If you are interested in building the IRC client (Unix only at this time), click "Full Article" below for instructions.

Also, Robert Ginda, author of the IRC client mentioned earlier today, writes:

"...The client's output window, including individual messages, is fully CSS stylable based on Channel, User, and Message Type, (as well as a few more obscure properties) in any combination. Screenshots of the client in action are [here].

The code hasn't hit lxr (lxr.mozilla.org) yet, but a bonsai query for rginda%ndcico.com, showing checkins in the last week, should turn up a complete log."

Did you build this using XUL? I am interested in how you have gotten XUL and CSS to do real-time flowing of text. Do you have a C++ backend of XPCOM components, or is it all Javascript? We must have technical details for such an exciting project!

Thanks, Brad Neuberg
