Build Status Code Coverage

The IRC (Internet Relay Chat) protocol is the oldest distributed chat protocol still in widespread use. This library implements both client and server sides of the IRC protocol as a pure state-machine which only takes in bytes and returns a list of parsed events. This leaves users free to use any I/O approach they see fit (asyncio, curio, Twisted, etc.).

Sample code is provided for implementing both clients and servers using a variety of I/O frameworks.
