[IRC] Internet Relay Chat integration

Please add an IRC client

Internet relay chat is an ancient protocol that has been working reliably since circa 1800BC. Unfortunately, Station does not support it.

Would you consider adding it?

There are plenty of almost-ready solutions available:

  • c++: codeguru[dot]com/cpp/i-n/network/article.php/c5415/C-Class-Library-for-IRC.htm
  • ruby: github [dot] com/cho45/net-irc
    *nodejs: github [dot] com/martynsmith/node-irc),
    *javascript: github [dot] com/clausjoergensen/jsIRC),
  • several self-hosted standalone solutions: linuxhint [dot] com/best-self-hosted-irc-clients/

Not everyone who’s using IRC is connecting via the sacred ways of the ancestors.

A way to enhance the IRC protocol would be to add some sort of drag and drop or copy-paste image upload.

I hope you consider this, thank you for this app.
