These are the following "open source" services programs that work with TSora based ircd's (Hybrid, ircd-ratbox, csircd, and 2.8.21+CS). The list is arranged by category, and is likely not complete.

Services are defined as programs that link into an IRC network as a server. The service then performs some task for the users, operators, and/or the administrators.

This is part of a series of pages providing information on programs usable with TSora IRC servers.

I have not run all of these programs. I cannot guarantee that any will even work. I also cannot guarantee they will work with all platforms.

The local copies of the programs may or may not be current. I try to keep them current but I sometimes will lag behind for a period of time.

Any entry with a gold background are programs that have been updated within the past year and/or are actively maintained.
