Spongy IRC

This is a sort of bouncer for clients with transient network connections, like cell phones and laptops. It's a lot like tapchat but is a whole lot simpler while being (at time of writing) much more feature-complete.

It supports (currently) an JavaScript browser-based client, and can also be worked from the command-line using Unix tools like "tail" and "echo".

Ironically, it doesn't currently work with any existing IRC clients, although we are kicking around ideas for such a thing. Honestly, though, if you want a bouncer for a traditional IRC client, you are better off using something like znc.

We have an architectural diagram if you care about such things.
