NetIRC2 is an easy-to-use .NET IRC client library. It supports all major features relevant to making a chat client or bot. It has full support for synchronization contexts. You can use it from a Windows Forms or WPF GUI thread and chat events will be automatically dispatched, allowing you to completely ignore multithreading. It uses byte arrays internally, so mixed encodings can be handled. The IrcClient class can even be used as a component in the Forms Designer. Because it speeds up connect times with some IRC servers, an Ident server is included as well.
Joker the IRC bot is a PHP class designed for quick and easy IRC bot construction. This base class contains methods that can be executed from your plugins. It has built-in flood protection, timers, and a powerful plugin system that allows you to reload plugin classes on-the-fly, without restarting the PHP console or disconnecting from the network.
Basic Broadcaster (bb) allows you to transfer text messages simply from one computer to another on a LAN. The messages are broadcast in the LAN and and can be received by each machine running bb. No setup is required other than starting the application. The messages are transmitted as plain text, and no encryption is done. The broadcasts can only be sent to machines on the same subnet as the sending machine, and will not be forwarded by routers to the Internet.
dxirc is a easy-to-use yet capable cross-platform IRC client. Among its notable features are flexible configuration, a fully customizable look independent of system-wide settings, multiple server support with optional automated joining of selected channels, and the ability to connect via SSL.
superseriousstats is a small and efficient program for creating a Web page with statistics from various types of IRC logs. It keeps track of its parse history and only processes new activity before storing any accumulated data in a SQLite or MySQL database. It is suitable for high volume IRC channels and large log archives, and is relatively easy to integrate with IRC services (e.g. bots) that interact with the database and provide last seen information and many other statistics directly in your channel.
