girc, a flexible IRC library for Go

Build Status Coverage Status GoDoc Go Report Card IRC Chat

Status

girc is fairly close to marking the 1.0.0 endpoint, which will be tagged as necessary, so you will be able to use this with care knowing the specific tag you're using won't have breaking changes

Features

  • Focuses on simplicity, yet tries to still be flexible.
  • Only requires standard library packages
  • Event based triggering/responses (example, and CTCP too!)
  • Documentation is mostly complete.
  • Support for almost all of the IRCv3 spec.
    • SASL Auth (currently only PLAIN and EXTERNAL is support by default, however you can simply implement SASLMech yourself to support additional mechanisms.)
    • Message tags (things like account-tag on by default)
    • account-notify, away-notify, chghost, extended-join, etc -- all handled seemlessly (cap.go for more info).
  • Channel and user tracking. Easily find what users are in a channel, if a user is away, or if they are authenticated (if the server supports it!)
  • Client state/capability tracking. Easy methods to access capability data (LookupChannel, LookupUser, GetServerOption (ISUPPORT), etc.)
  • Built-in support for things you would commonly have to implement yourself.

Installing

$ go get -u github.com/lrstanley/girc
