So, I’ve been literally hacking away at the Android SDK/API trying to figure out all the cool stuff. I’m no way a Java developer. Matter of fact, I can’t stand Java. So with that aside, Android is really cool stuff. I’ve been missing a few applications from my Sidekick and one of them is a home-grown IRC app. It’s pretty nice to have around when I was bored and waiting around doing nothing. SO! I’ve threw an XMPP (also known as Jabber) client together using Smack and then linked to IRC via eJabberd’s IRC-Transport. After a few days of hacking… I have results.
I’ll continue work and hopefully I’ll be able to release this into the wild. Still needs a login dialog and status dialogs, etc.. etc.
