      1 Multitail + Vim
      2 ---------------
      3 To make ii a bit more comfortable, use it in combination with the multitail
      4 program and for example with vim. Run vim in the server directory and use key
      5 mapping like:
      7 	map w1 :.w >>\\#ii/in<cr>
      8 	map w2 :.w >>\\#wmii/in<cr>
     10 to post to channels. Thanks to Matthias Kopfermann for this hint.
     12 Another cool thing is to use it with splitvt so you have multitail windows on
     13 top and for example four lines of vim at the bottom.
     15 There is also a blog post which describes the whole configuration:

     18 Popup Chat Windows

     20 You can also try [pcw]( which will (by default)
     21 open a new terminal for each channel you join. On startup, and after receiving
     22 SIGUSR1, pcw will open a terminal for every channel you are already in. By
     23 default it depends on [srw]( as a line editing
     24 wrapper. Just run 'pcw ~/irc' (or whichever directory you have ii using) then
     25 start up ii. Note that closing a terminal does not exit the channel. If that
     26 channel receives a new message the terminal will open again. To leave the
     27 channel you must first '/l' and then close the window. (the combination of pcw
     28 + ii + bitlbee let me stop using pidgin :-D)
     30 Web frontend
     31 ------------
     32 phpii is a simple web frontend for ii. You can see a demo of it and download
     33 the php source here: [phpii
     34 homepage](
     36 iii
     37 ---
     38 [iii]( (maybe interactive ii, or
     39 something) is a collection of shell scripts to produce a cli frontend to ii.
     40 iii looks like a "normal" irc client (ie irssi), working on top of ii.
     42 It features connections to multiple servers and autojoin of channels,
     43 auto-reconnect to servers and channels on network failure, autocompletion
     44 through rlwrap, formatted and colored output etc.
     46 It can be used directly in the command line, or like pcw spawning terminals for
     47 each channel, or inside a dedicated tmux session.
     49 Read the readme file, and do not hesitate to ask c00kiemon5ter for help on
     50 freenode and oftc.

     66 for convenient use of ii and ji.
     68 wii

     89 [Yet Another Ii Client]( is a shell script
     90 for ii with channel switching, proper line folding, and pretty formatting.
     92 TLS/SSL
     93 -------
     94 To connect to a TLS/SSL encrypted channel, it is possible to use the [SSL
     95 patch](/ii/patches/ssl) or a proxy:
     97 [stunnel]( is a proxy for an unencrypted TCP
     98 connection to TLS:
    100 In `/etc/stunnel/stunnel.conf`:
    102 	[]
    103 	accept =<your-port>
    104 	connect =
    106 [inetd]( listens on multiple TCP ports and can
    107 connect a program standard input and output to a TCP socket.
    109 This enables it to act as a simple proxy using any command line TLS client,
    110 such as [openssl s_client](,
    111 [brssl client](;a=blob;f=tools/brssl.c;h=91372b09f42149a503f9d13db0b78cf0a123611e;hb=HEAD#l43),
    112 nc -ssl, socat... or any other:
    114 In `/etc/inetd.conf`:
    116 	/tmp/	stream	unix	nowait	nobody	/usr/bin/openssl	openssl s_client -quiet -connect
    118 Then a proxy should be available as an unix socket for ii to connect to:
    120 	ii -s -u /tmp/
