Description : IRC suite operating via D-Bus
The sushi IRC suite consists of a central daemon and several clients, which communicate via DBus. DBus methods and signals are provided by the daemon to abstract the IRC protocol. Clients can use these methods and signals to easily interact with IRC.
The daemon – maki – provides DBus methods and signals that abstract the IRC protocol to make it more pleasant to use. Consequently, clients using this interface can focus on providing a good user experience instead of worrying about implementation details of the IRC protocol. For example, this interface could also be used to easily write IRC bots in any language that supports DBus.
The suite currently provides a graphical client for GTK – tekka – as well as one for the terminal – nigiri.
