Smuxi is an irssi-inspired, cross-platform IRC client for the GNOME desktop. Similar to Quassel, it allows to split the frontend client from the backend engine which manages connections to IRC servers.
Smuxi is based on the client-server model: The core application can be placed onto a server which is connected to the Internet around-the-clock; one or more clients then connect to the core. This way, the connection to IRC can be kept up even when all clients have been closed. The combination of screen and Irssi served as example for this architecture.
Smuxi also supports the regular single application mode. This behaves like a typical IRC client; it doesn't need separate core management and utilizes a local engine that is used by the local front end client.
Smuxi supports nick colors which are identical across channels and networks, a Caret Mode as seen in Firefox that allows to navigate through the messages using the keyboard, theming with colors and fonts, configurable tray-icon support, optional stripping of colours and formattings and convenience features like CTCP support, channel search and nick name completion. It has a tabbed document interface, tabbed user interface, and support for multiple servers. Smuxi can attach to a local backend engine or a remote engine utilizing the Engine drop down menu (similar to screen used with irssi).
If you're looking for IRC clients you're spoilt for choice with many distributions, as there are plenty to choose from. Some are text-based (IRSSI), some integrate well with instant messenger applications (Pidgin) while others are simply IRC clients through and through. Smuxi falls into the latter category, and we're glad it does, because it's a good little IRC client.
Smuxi is a lightweight client with a slim, yet fully customizable interface. ... Smuxi allows the user to completely change the default interface, moving or removing just about any aspect.
Smuxi can be found in many major free operating systems such as: Debian GNU/Linux (also Debian GNU/kFreeBSD) , Ubuntu , Gentoo Linux , Arch Linux , and openSUSE Community Repository .
