Simple Weechat-Relay Android Client

branch: master

Weechat Android Relay Client

This is an Android Weechat Relay client. It is currently in beta status, with most things working. I use it daily without issue.

This requires weechat to be running somewhere and it connects to it. It is not a standalone weechat for your phone. If you are looking for a standalone irc client for android, you will need to look elsewhere.


Stable(ish) version - Google Play Store

Either scan the QR code, or download it from the Google Play Store.


Latest Development Snapshot - v0.08-dev

Build Status

If you're feeling adventurous, you can try the latest development version. This is built after every commit, and while I try to keep a working build, it may fail or have major bugs.

Get the latest development version here (Note: This is signed with a different key than the stable version, so you will have to uninstall to move between them)

Installation and usage:

Please refer to the quick start guide for details:


Please see the screenshots in the google play store:

Bug Reports and Feature Requests Welcome!

All of the source code is available right here on github. For a quick introduction to setting up ant/eclipse so you can begin hacking on the code, please see:

  • Translation: If you would like to help translating this app, all of the strings are in weechat-android/res/values/strings.xml; and there aren't a terribly large number of them.
