Tiny Tiny IRC is an open source AJAX-powered chat platform with support for IRC. The idea behind this being that you don’t need either client software or even a stable network connection to chat, just keep the site open to see new messages.


Supports some niche features like image embedding, emoticons, themes, and local (i.e. server-less) chatting. Can be easily extended via javascript hooks.

Can connect to standard IRC servers and host local chat channels without any external connections and limitations inherent to RFC 1459 protocol.

There’s no warranty. If it breaks you get to keep both parts.



  • httpd (i.e. nginx/apache);
  • PHP 5 or newer (requires compiled-in support for iconv, PDO (PostgreSQL) and JSON functions);
  • Java SE (see JavaDependencies) to run backend connection daemon (see RunningConnectionDaemon) - optional for outbound IRC connections, local chat works without it;
  • PostgreSQL 9.1;
  • Redis server;


  • Any modern browser should work fine.

Please read the installation guide before installing.
