ChatZilla on XULRunner
Standalone Mozilla IRC Client, no browsers attached.
ChatZilla is normally used as part of
SeaMonkey, or an
extension to other
browsers. However, it can also run under XULRunner,
allowing ChatZilla to be used standalone, independent of a web browser.
Simply extract the package and run chatzilla/chatzilla.exe.
These steps have been reported broken. I'm looking at it, honest!
22 for OS X and extract it to /Library/Frameworks/.
- Open a terminal window and run
"<package>", where <package> is the
full path to the ChatZilla .xulapp file.
- Start ChatZilla in your Applications folder.
If you need to copy over settings or scripts, use the ChatZilla
command /pref profilePath to find your profile.
ChatZilla will regularly check for updates, but nothing will be downloaded
without your permission. If you downloaded a package including XULRunner, then
that will also be included in the updates.
In addition to ChatZilla plugins, these builds support extensions and themes.
The Extension manager can be opened from the ChatZilla menu.
You don't need to build Mozilla to build ChatZilla. You just need Mercurial,
Python, and something to apply a diff.
- Check out from the ChatZilla
Mercurial repository (hg clone http://hg.mozilla.org/chatzilla).
- Apply this patch:
- Go to xpi and run
- The new .xulapp file in the directory is the XULRunner app package.
