Using Rake:

You may have to install rake.

(sudo) gem install rake builder pry

If that doesn't work you may have to install ruby, which is out of this readme's scope.

Type rake -T to see available tasks.

Adding new Icons

Icons are located in the Icons directory. They're named in the format

{Optional Namespace}/{Icon Name}-{alias1}-{alias2}-{aliasn}.png

So Troll/Troll-troll-problem-problem?.png would compile to

Name: Troll - Troll
Aliases: [troll] [problem] [problem?]

Adding support for another IM Client

Create a new task in the Rakefile.
