irac - 'a p2p instant messenger for tor'-ish

irac is supposed to give you a peer-to-peer (audio-) chat solution that is easy to set-up and easy to use.

This is work in progress and not ready for field use.

Similar to TorChat.


$ sudo npm install irac (TODO: publish when ready ;)
$ sudo npm install git://


$ irac     (normal usage)
$ irac-gui (start gui, duh)
$ irac id       (prints your user-id and public key)
$ irac tor      (starts only the tor instance with hidden service)
$ irac port     (prints the tor and irac port-numbers)
$ irac devinit  (dowloads node-webit and rebuilds modules)
$ irac devgui   (runs the node-webit gui, requires successful devinit)
$ irac buildgui (builds the node-webkit gui, requires successful devinit)
$ irac pack     (builds a releaseable node-webkit package)
