As a developer, I use my command line a lot so why not integrate chat directly into it?
whir aims to close this gap by providing a simple, flexible, extend-able and blazing fast chat environment, without having to install additional applications.

whir does not store messages in any form.

Installation

whir is written in JavaScript and you should have installed the latest version of Nodejs.

gt; npm i -g whir.io

  • --user || -u: Your username (per channel) Required
