Twisted is an event-based framework for Internet applications. It includes a Web server, an SMTP/POP3 server, a telnet server, an SSH server, an IRC server, a DNS server, a generic client/server pair for remote object access (Perspective Broker), and APIs for creating new protocols. It supports integration with GTK+, GTK+ 2, Qt, Tkinter, wxPython, Mac OS X (PyObjC) and Win32 event loops. It also supports TCP, SSL and TLS, UDP, Unix sockets, multicast, and serial ports. Supported protocols include HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, TOC, OSCAR (AIM and ICQ), SSH, DNS, IRC, NNTP, Jabber, SOCKSv4, Telnet, SIP (for VoIP), and XML-RPC and SOAP using external packages. Most protocols are supported as both servers and clients.
psyced is a distributed chat and messaging system based on the Protocol for SYnchronous Conferencing. PSYC is multicast and routed between servers and clients in a scalable and efficient way, but users can also comfortably use IRC clients, telnet, Web chat, WAP, or Jabber to enter the network. psyced also communicates with the network of Jabber/XMPP servers and hosts programmable chat rooms for all of these technologies at once. It also provides gateways to several IRC networks, but unlike IRC, everyone can run a server and be an equal member of the PSYC network. It supports PSYC, XMPP, IRC, TELNET, HTTP, Applet, SMTP, WAP, XML, RSS, and TLS.
LDMud is an LP-class MUD engine, meaning it is object-oriented, with all object clases stored in unique files. The engine runs compiled bytecode to manipulate those objects, and the underlying simulated processor is a stack machine. It is a 3rd-generation LP-class MUD, being derived from Amylaar, which in turn was derived from the original LPMud. The game has no limitations on the nature of the game space other than the limits of your coding.
MudMagic Mud Client is a GTK/GNOME multi-platform MUD client. It provides aliases, triggers, multiple connections, plugins, MCCP, ZMP, MSP, tabbed sessions, ANSI color, and a game list that can be updated from mudmagic.com. It is configurable on a per-session basis. Plugins include an automapper, database, and note pad.
mcl is a MUD client running in a Virtual Console under Linux or using standard TTY routines under any other UNIX. Embedded Perl or Python offer very high tweakability. Other features include huge scrollback, a stable input line with the MUD prompt, Perl regexps for actions and substitutions.
