A versatile web based messenger using IRC
If you just want to embed an IRC client on your website, you can generate a custom client hosted by kiwiirc.com using the simple client builder, https://kiwiirc.com/clientbuilder/
To install Kiwi IRC on your own server, pre-built and ready to use installers can be found at the downloads page, https://kiwiirc.com/downloads/
Before you can build or start to develop on Kiwi IRC, make sure to have the following installed on your system:
# Install dependencies $ yarn install # Build Kiwi IRC into the dist/ folder $ yarn run build
Note: Be sure to copy the files from the
dist/ folder to your webserver! This folder will be overwritten each time it is built.
Kiwi IRC is built using Vuejs, webpack and babel.
# Install dependencies yarn install # Optionally link git pre-commit linting hooks ln -s $PWD/scripts/pre-commit .git/hooks/ # A development web server with hot reloading at http://localhost:8080/ yarn run dev
Note: Do not use this development environment on your live website. It is slow, very large, and unsecure.
By default, the client will load the /static/config.json file on startup which contains the runtime configuration. When running in the development environment this can be found at static/config.json
Kiwi IRC is tested on all modern browsers and IE11. Other browsers are not actively tested and may have trouble running Kiwi IRC.
