polari-logo Polari

Polari is a simple Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client that is designed to integrate seamlessly with the GNOME desktop. You can find additional information on its GNOME project page.


The easiest way to build the latest development version of Polari and start hacking on the code is to follow the recommended [GNOME guide] build-instructions.

Getting in Touch

Surprise, there is an IRC channel! If you have any questions regarding the use or development of Polari, want to discuss design or simply hang out with nice folks, please join us in #polari on
