EKG2

Multi-platform, multi-protocol, and plugin-based, instant messenger with a Gtk+ 2 GUI or a console UI!

EKG2 is an open source IM application for Unix systems (Linux, *BSD, SunOS, Solaris, Mac OS X, BeOS) available under the terms of the GPL.

EKG2 is plugin-based, and because of this, it can support many different protocols. It can also support different GUIs! Below is a list of available plugins.

Protocol plugins:

  • Jabber - (XMPP, GTalk and Tlen.pl support),
  • GG (gadu-gadu) - (using libgadu, the most popular polish IM protocol),
  • IRC - (mostly IRCnet-oriented),
  • ICQ
  • polchat
  • rivchat

GUI plugins:

  • Gtk+ 2.x - under development.
  • ncurses - primary EKG2 user-interface, console
  • readline

Logging facility:

  • logs - a multi-functionality plugin that allows logging in irssi-like format, in XML, in a simple format and in a raw format.
  • logsqlite - logging into a SQLite database.

Scripting languages bindings: Python, Perl

Other superb plugins:

  • autoresponder - a simple captcha for IM
  • sim (using OpenSSL) & gpg - these plugins allow encryption within supported protocols
  • jogger - allows manipulation of JoggerBot via ekg2
  • mail - checking local maildir/mailbox for new messages
  • nntp - read Usenet news
  • rss - read RSS/Atom feeds
  • sms - sms sending

There are also a few other plugins in development.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
