As a developer, I use my command line a lot so why not integrate chat directly into it?
whir aims to close this gap by providing a simple, flexible, extend-able and blazing fast chat environment, without having to install additional applications.
whir does not store messages in any form.
$> npm i -g whir.io
-u: Your username (per channel)
-c: Channel you are joining (or creating)
-h: Whir's host
-p: Password, for private channels
-m: Mute this conversation
$> whir.io --user=stefan --channel=friends
$> whir.io -u stefan -c friends
// Random channel and muted conversation. $> whir.io -u stefan -m
// Running whir on your own server/domain. $> whir.io -u stefan -c friends -h myawesomedomain.chat
Once connected, type
/help for a list of basic commands.
/exit to leave at any time.
You can also setup and run your own whir server.
