Atomic - a Fork of Yaaic

Atomic scratches an itch I (@indrora) had: A sexy IRC client that worked. After trying HoloIRC, AndChat, yaaic, and several others, yaaic came the closest and after pressure from friends, I decided to go ahead and fork yaaic.

Atomic's official IRC channel is #atomic-irc on Freenode.

I'm changing the name to prevent clashes with yaaic, and to preserve Sebastian's honour.

The last bit of the original yaaic readme is kept below;

Newer icons used within are from the Android core icon pack, from Google. Ostensibly, they are (C) Google, inc. They are provided free of charge to Android developers. I claim no exclusive usage of them other than to say I use them.

The application icon is derived from the CC-BA 3.0 Unported icon by Designmodo. Its details can be seen at Iconfinder:

Things that I have changed/added

  • Icons now match the Holo style (predominantly)
  • Highlight notification sound can be chosen from the settings

Many of the translations are in flux. Please contribute on Crowdin to make sure your language is spoken by Atomic!

Current/future features/changes

  • Option to not hide the soft keyboard on SEND (Somewhat DONE!)
  • Changing the size of the font in dp not in px (Working on it!)
  • Update of all the icons (DONE!)
  • Selecting a message copies it to the clipboard (There's support in there somewhere)
  • Option to not scroll when a new message appears in a channel (Kinda done!)

Building Atomic

Atomic is built on Gradle. You should be fine.
