Windows Installer

Posted by Sebastian Pippingon January 30th 2008

Joshua Dick and Sebastian Pipping have been putting our work into improving the Irssi experience for Windows users. We made an installer built on NSIS and an USB archive made to be put on an USB stick and allow carrying your personal Irssi instance with you.

Welcome page.

Both packages offer running Irssi in two modes: either through cmd (the default Windows command line) or puttycyg (a Putty-based command line) which mainly looks better than cmd.

Have fun with it and report any bugs!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Funny Irssi theme!

Posted by Geert on April 24th 2006

Today when I opened my mail client I was surprised by a “new theme”, I looked at it and saw a GTK2 Java development IDE which some interesting Irssi/IRC embedded into it. [Screenshot]

I have to admit that this is the most funniest Irssi theme I’ve seen so far. It’s amazing what people can do to reach their goals (or to hide their client @ work :p).

The c0ders theme has been added to the themes page. We will add the other submitted scripts and themes when we start working with Google’s Summer of Code.

Hint by the author:

It comes in real handy at work, where not every should see on the first look that i’m actually chatting ;)
