Features

Ratchet has most features expected of an IRC client, but several of them are incomplete and maybe be buggy, here is a partial list of features however. More will be added and improved as icecap and Ratchet mature

  • Config dialog where almost all features are configurable.
  • Configurable formats for all events and timestamps.
  • Tab bar can be relocated to top, bottom, left or right sides of the window.(BROKEN)
  • Times can be used from either the client where Ratchet is running or from the server running irssi2.
  • Tab completion with option to set whether tab completion results are sorted by name or last activity time. Also allows tab completion of commands.
  • Right click popup menus for users, links, tabs
  • Link parsing to identify clickable links.
  • All configs not required to connect are stored in icecap.
  • Supports almost all icecap's features.
  • A powerful plugin API and plugin framework that allows plugins to be loaded/unloaded/configured (still somewhat experimental but stabilizing)

  • Tab numbering. (BROKEN)
  • Windows support

  • Link grabber, links can be filtered by time, username or URL (BROKEN)
  • GUI for managing presences/gateways/networks
  • As much as possible things will be controllable via the keyboard. A keybinding system and GUI will be implemented.
  • Everything done via the GUI (connecting, configuring, plugin management) should be possible to be done via the entry line to keep that old CLI power for those who like it.
  • A dynamic help system for program commands, plugins can include documentation of their commands so they will be documented on load.
  • A Flexible and powerful aliasing system.
