SwingIrc: A simple IRC client

Posted on Sunday Nov 01, 2015 at 01:42PM in Technology

About 6 years ago I’ve made a simple IRC client that uses Swing. I’ve digged source code of the app from my old PC by chance so I’ve Mavenized it and put it to GitHub. To be hornest, it’s a toy app but may someone like a student can refer it as an example of Java based GUI application.

How To Launch

Future plans

  • Rewrite entire the app with JavaFX

  • Implement more features

  • Involve automated GUI testing
