Weechat-Android relay client

This is a WeeChat relay client for Android.

This application is not a standalone an IRC client. It connects to WeeChat that has to be running on a remote machine. If you are looking for a standalone IRC client for Android, you will need to look elsewhere.

Latest Development Snapshot Build Status

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

Google Play Nightly Builds

We now have automatic builds published to the google play store as commits are made. This is the same as the snapshot builds you can get above, just published to the google play store for convenience. It only includes builds of the master branch. These builds are published to the beta branch, so you need to be a beta test for this application. To participate, you need to “become a tester”. After that either get it from Google Play or scan this QR code:
