Question for the Fedi.
Does anyone have a suggestion for IRC clients for Android? Prefer FOSS ;)
@jordan31 You can do weechat in termux if you're feeling like a terminal solution.
@mike Hmm, not sure how I would do that on Lineage, but, I like the sound of it!
@ijatz_La_Hojita Thanks, I'll check this one out as well! Just to got to figure out how to install the f-droid store.
irssi all the way @jordan31
@bignose For Android? I use irssi for my computers but was not aware of an Android build.
Was partly joking @jordan31, but Irssi ConnectBot does exist https://apkpure.com/irssi-connectbot/org.woltage.irssiconnectbot
@bignose Ah ok :D
@jordan31 Yeah, I was surprised.
I don't think I could stand participating in IRC on a handheld device.
@bignose I'm willing to give it a try, at least enough to attempt moving away from discord.
@jordan31 revolution irc is great. I think it's Foss
@cavaliertusky Thanks, I'll check it out!
@jordan31 good question. The ones I've tried (last was qicr lite) all sucked, partly due to the up and down nature of network connection on a phone. I think what is best is some sort of bouncer to an always connected irc client running on a server.
@tomosaigon That sounds interesting, and you make a good point.
Sadly I know nothing about IRC so it's all an learning experience.
@tomosaigon So far I'm testing revolution irc and kind of liking it.
