HIrcd – minimal IRC server in Python

Monday, September 14th, 2009

I wrote a little IRC server in Python:

HIrcd is a minimal, hacky implementation of an IRC server daemon written in Python in about 400 lines of code, including comments, etc.

It is mostly useful as a testing tool or perhaps for building something like a private proxy on. Do NOT use it in any kind of production code or anything that will ever be connected to by the public.

Direct link to the source code, for those interested.
