quasselclient — GUI of the Quassel IRC client, client only


quasselclient [OPTION]...


Quassel IRC is a modern, cross-platform, distributed IRC client, meaning that one (or multiple) client(s) can attach to and detach from a central core -- much like the popular combination of screen and a text-based IRC client such as WeeChat, but graphical.

quasselclient connects to and manages a running quasselcore and will not work on its own. For a standalone IRC client experience, use the quassel monolithic program.
