IRC client for Emacs.

Circe is an IRC client for Emacs. It integrates well with the rest of the editor, using standard Emacs key bindings and indicating activity in channels in the status bar so it stays out of your way unless you want to use it.

Features include:

  • Per-query and per-channel buffers
  • Auto-query buffers/windows (even on /MSG)*Nick-highlighting*An extensible ignore*Automatic splitting at word boundaries of long lines to be sent
  • Flood protection
  • Per-server (not per-channel) separate encoding and decoding coding systems; an Emacs feature even allows the client to transparently work with multiple encodings, such as when both Latin-1 and UTF-8 are used on a channel*Auto-join
  • NickServ-support
  • Netsplit handling
