ircii will be an IRC client for the Wii. I created it out of frustration for these reasons:

  • Web-based clients are the only option for the Wii afaik, and many are/can be blocked. I hate it.
  • I hate having to retype things constantly using the Wii's on-screen keyboard and perform hundreds of Google searches.

ircii aims to change that:

  • It makes a connection directly to the server to bypass web client blocks
  • It attempts to be low-overhead

ircii is powered by libwiigui.

Status

I can initialize the network, can connect but now trying to parse IRC commands. No source code will be released yet as I am not done with most of the code and GUI, however I will open-source it.

All pre-release testing is currently being done on my own Wii (4.3u, IOS58)
