    Differences from node-irc

    The node-irc library isn't well maintained and there are a number of issues which are impacting development of the Matrix-IRC application service. We made the decision to fork the project in order to improve reliability of the application service. A summary of modifications from node-irc@0.3.12 are below:

    • TypeScript support
    • https://github.com/matrix-org/node-irc/pull/1 - Manifested as BOTS-80
    • https://github.com/matrix-org/node-irc/pull/4 - Manifested as [BOTS-73] (https://matrix.org/jira/browse/BOTS-73)
    • Handle +R - https://github.com/matrix-org/node-irc/commit/7c16b994b12145b6da8961790bcfa808fb7fcba9
    • Handle more error codes (430,435,438)
    • Fix bug which would fail to connect conflicting nicks which == NICKLEN.
    • Fix err_unavailresource on connection with reserved nicks.
    • Workaround for the Scunthorpe problem: https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-appservice-irc/issues/103
    • Add methods for working out if a given text will be split and into how many lines.
    • Add names support (incl. multi-prefix).
    • Add functions to determine if a user prefix is more powerful than another (e.g. @ > &)
    • Case-map all incoming channels correctly (e.g on PRIVMSG and NOTICE)
    • Allow IP family to be chosen to allow IPv6 connections.
    • Add function for getting channel modes.
    • Workaround terrible RFC3484 rules which means that IPv6 DNS rotations would not be honoured.
    • Add setUserMode to set a user's mode.
    • Addition of encodingFallback option which allows setting encoding to use for non-UTF-8 encoded messages.
    • Addition of onNickConflict() option which is called on err_nicknameinuse. This function should return the next nick to try. The function defaults to suffixing monotonically increasing integers. Usage:
      new Client("server.com", "MyNick", {
         onNickConflict: function() {
           return "_MyNick_";
         }
      });
