IRCCloud Desktop

This is a prototype of an IRCCloud desktop app for Windows, Linux (Debian/Ubuntu), and macOS. The app wraps the IRCCloud website in a native window.

This app is currently experimental and is not officially supported, however it should provide equivalent or better functionality to other IRCCloud desktop wrapper apps.

If you have any issues, please file them in the GitHub Issue Tracker.


The latest official build can be downloaded here. The appropriate version should be detected based on your OS.


Build Status Build status

IRCCloud Desktop is built on the Electron app framework, as used by GitHub's Atom editor. For more information, check out the Electron documentation.

Build Requirements

  • Node JS version 5.3 or higher
  • yarn (recommended upstream) or NPM (works fine)

On Linux, you also need the icnsutils, and xz-utils packages.


Run make dev in the root of the repository to run the app quickly (without icons).

To build a full version, make dist.

Instructions for building packages and signed binaries on CI are at docs/
