client for IRC in Emacs
Circe is a Client for IRC in Emacs. It integrates well with the rest of the editor, using standard Emacs key bindings and indicating activity in channels in the status bar so it stays out of your way unless you want to use it. Complexity-wise, it is somewhere between rcirc (very minimal) and ERC (very complex).
