|+`ಠ_ಠ` is an IRC client/IRC client framework.|
|+Out of the box, the clients are absolutely minimal, providing basically nothing but a text-stream|
|+into and out of a set of IRC “items”:|
|+![ಠ_ಠ out of the box](http://elliottcable.s3.amazonaws.com/p/original-%E0%B2%A0_%E0%B2%A0.png)|
|+These are completely UNIX-style compatible, and you can pipe to/from “windows” and individual IRC|
|+itmes, such as a specific channel:|
|+ಠ_ಠ '##Hat' | grep '^elliottcable: '|
|+A single ಠ_ಠ server will remain connected to IRC for you at all times, and you can “attach” multiple|
|+clients to it in separate terminals, viewing different channels, queries, or combinations of|
|+channels and queries. You can define ‘windows’ that will retain specific combinations of channels|
|+and queries, and retain scrollback from them for when you return at a later point.|
|+complex/powerful an interface as you would like. The server itself can run scripts that modify your|
|+overall IRC experience, while specific windows (as described above) can be scripted to customize the|
|+experience in ways unique to particular groups of channels and queries.|
|+Most crucially, the entire interface itself (beyond what is visible in the screenshot above) is|
|+built via the scripting API; and you have full access to ncurses-level interface-building|
|+functionality to implement everything from timestamps, to nickname hilights, to user lists, to|
|+statusbars. You can have an interface as simple as [ii] or as complex as [irssi], entirely through|
|+ [ii]: <http://tools.suckless.org/ii/> "a minimalist FIFO and filesystem-based IRC client"|
|+ [irssi]: <http://irssi.org/> "themable ncurses IRC client"|
