CamperVan, a Campfire to IRC bridge
CamperVan, as far as your IRC client is concerned, is just another ircd.
Campfire rooms and users are mapped as IRC channels and nicks. Campfire messages, even custom ones such as tweets and sounds, are translated for an IRC client to understand.
Wherever possible, Campfire messages and IRC commands are translated bidirectionally. Some of the mappings are:
IRC Campfire --- -------- #day_job "Day Job" room joe_bob (nick) Joe Bob (user) @admin_user (nick) An admin user "joe_bob: hello" (message) "Joe Bob: hello" (message) https://tweet_url Tweet message /me waves *waves* /LIST List rooms /JOIN #day_job Join the "Day Job" room /PART #day_job Leave the "Day Job" room /WHO #day_job List users in "Day Job" /MODE +i #day_job Lock room /MODE -i #day_job Unlock room /TOPIC #day_job new topic Change room's topic to "new topic"
gem install camper_van camper_van --help
