Ergo is a modern IRCd (IRC server software) written in Go. Its core design principles are: * Being simple to set up and use * Combining the features of an ircd, a services framework, and a bouncer (integrated account management, history storage, and bouncer functionality) * Bleeding-edge IRCv3 support suitable for use as an IRCv3 reference implementation * High customizability via a rehashable (i.e., reloadable at runtime) YAML config For more information, see our GitHub pages: * Main project page * Download a release * Operator manual * End user guide irc.ergo.chat is the official self-hosted IRC network of the Ergo project. It hosts the official support channel for Ergo (#ergo). Other communities are welcome --- come find us in #ergo and ask if you're interested in hosting your project or community here. To connect directly, configure your IRC client with: Host: irc.ergo.chat Port: 6697 SSL/TLS: true The main channels are #ergo (the support channel) and #chat (for socializing). You can also use one of our web clients: Kiwi or gamja. By default, all hostnames on ergo.chat are cryptographically "cloaked" so that your IP address information is not visible to other users (although it is visible to server administrators). If you would like to anonymize your connection against the administrators as well, we are accessible via the Tor network, although you may be banned from some channels until you register a nickname: Host: vrw7zcuarwx4oeju3iikiz3jffrvuijsysyznqf53mxizxrebomfnrid.onion Port: 6667 SSL/TLS: false For information on Ergo's distinctive features, see the official user guide.
