hook.io-irc - IRC Client hook for hook.io

Hook.io IRC is a client wrapper around node-irc that provides both support for hook.io events (emitting them on IRC events and providing a Hook.io API for IRC interaction) and a basic command-line interface for direct IRC interaction.


 git clone git@github.com:hookio/irc.git
 cd irc
 npm install
 node bin/irc

Using NPM

npm install hook.io-irc
