Switch branches/tags

Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?


If you are looking for TorChat (the original Python implementation) then please switch to the torchat_py branch. For downloads of the latest versions please see the downloads section:

Please don't use the master branch at all, it still points to torchat_py but will soon be moved, if you have own work based on master then please rebase it to torchat_py.

This branch torchat2 is a rewrite from scratch, using Lazarus + Free Pascal. This will make it easier to create plugins for existing IM applications and also allows to easily generate code for a wider range of platforms, especially mobile devices like Android and iPhone.

At the moment this branch is mainly used to develop a plugin for libpurple (the Pidgin-IM) which will be the first thing that you can expect to come out of this branch, later (once this works) there will also be a standalone GUI that will completely replace the current Python implementation (Don't worry, the python version will stay here in the torchat_py branch, it is the reference implementation of the protocol, I'm still using it myself as protocol documentation and to test other implementations against it, it will not go away)

Please note that TorChat is produced independently from the Tor® anonymity software, I am not related with or sponsored by TorChat is making use of the Tor® client software and the Windows version comes bundled with original Tor binaries but TorChat itself is a completely separate project developed by totally different people, so if you instead want to buy the developers of Tor® from a beer (they deserve it even more than me and without their great Tor software my little program would not have been possible) then please consider doing so at the following address:
