Aims to be a full-featured IRC server, started as a way to get some Python practice. The primary priority is complete support of the three RFCs describing the IRC protocol.
- Optionally set up a virtualenv with Python 2.7.
- Install dependencies with
pip install -r requirements.txt
- Run the server with
The basic framework is mostly stable. Command handlers get an abstract message object, operate on the database, and return similar abstract message objects. The database currently consists of simplistic in-memory dictionaries. Messages are passed to the handlers and to the targets in a generic way. Incoming messages are parsed with pyparsing. No server-server communication yet.
- RFC2811 - Internet Relay Chat: Channel Management: Channels are created as they are joined by users; nothing else is done yet
- RFC2812 - Internet Relay Chat: Client Protocol:
- NICK: 100%
- USER: 100%
- PART: 100%
- JOIN: no PART all if channel is '0', no channel key checking
- PRIVMSG: no support for wildcards, some checks missing
- WHO: multiple parameters not supported
- TOPIC: some checks missing
- QUIT: no PART messages
- RFC2813 - Internet Relay Chat: Server Protocol: 0%
python-ircd is developed on Python 2.7
