ShadowIRC plugins archive

The ShadowIRC plugins archive is a collection of plugins and their source code for the Macintosh IRC client ShadowIRC, for classic Mac OS (9.2.2 and earlier). The aim of the archive is to make available once again all the plugins produced for ShadowIRC, which these days are mostly unavailable due to their websites having disappeared.

The collection is now virtually complete, I think. Thanks go to Cameroon and Apex for supplying their own plugins to me, and to Batshua for providing me with another bunch. I am still hoping to get copies of mledford’s plugins (if he can find the CD), though, particularly InputSaver. If you have any plugins not listed here, please contact me and supply them for this archive.

Note that the notes column is only of interest to plugin developers.
