Embedding a Kiwi IRC widget on your website can be a great way to bring your community together or host an online event.
No more linking to a long kiwirc.com address - you can keep your community and users on your own website while taking advantage of the well tested kiwiirc.com servers and functionality.
At the very least you must know where you want your users to connect to. This will be an IRC network and a channel name. If you don't have either of these, feel free to use irc.kiwiirc.com as the network and any channel name of your choosing (letters and numbers only but starting with a # symbol).
If you would like the Kiwi widget directly inside your website, you can go one step further and use the tool on the right to generate your own HTML code which can be used in your Wordpress, Joomla, blogs or any other CMS websites.
The features and offerings by GitHub makes your life a lot easier when it comes to your open source projects, but one thing more and more
developers are using is IRC.
IRC gives open source projects the discussion platform and community tools for real-time communication and working.
You can now link your GitHub project to your own IRC channel (or create one on freenode!) by embedding a button within your readme.md file. This can be generated using the form to the right and selecting the GitHub logo.
