IRC INFO FOR ITP

Connect using below commands:

/server irc.freenode.net

/join #itp

Welcome to a quick setup guide for IRC (Internet Relay Chat). The goal of this page is to get you setup with an appropriate IRC client, connected to a server, and in the ITP channel (chatroom).

When connected to the freenode server there will be already existing chat rooms to join for help with #processing, #arduino, #node.js, and more! Type "/list" for available channels. If help is needed please find myself (AJ), Will Field, or Denny for assistance.
Choose your installation route below:

OPTION 1: TERMINAL BASED

You live in the terminal and the thought of unneccesery GUI's gives you the creeps.

-=Clone the BitchX repo and compile!=-

STEP 1:
git clone https://github.com/BitchX/BitchX1.2 BitchX

STEP 2:
cd BitchX

STEP 3:
./configure --with-ssl --with-plugins --enable-ipv6

STEP 4:
make

STEP 5:
sudo make install

BITCHX USER GUIDE for commands and help.

OPTION 2: GUI BASED

You prefer the comfort of a mouse, GUI, and love good UX. If on a mac you should use Textual if you have a couple dollars to spare, if not try Limechat. If using windows try the classic mIRC.
