lic is an IRC client/IRC client framework.
lic hub will remain connected to IRC for you at all times, and you can “attach” multiple
clients to it--called petals--in separate terminals, viewing different channels, queries, or combinations of
channels and queries. You can define ‘windows’ that will retain specific combinations of channels
and queries, and retain scrollback from them for when you return at a later point.
complex/powerful an interface as you would like. The hub can run scripts that modify your
overall IRC experience, while specific windows (as described above) can be scripted to customize the
experience in ways unique to particular groups of channels and queries.
Most crucially, the entire interface itself is built via the scripting API; and you have full access to ncurses-level interface-building functionality to implement everything from timestamps, to nickname hilights, to user lists, to statusbars. You can have an interface as simple as ii or as complex as irssi, entirely through user-built scripts.
