Squawk Chat 2006-12-31

Squawk is a text and voice chat program geared towards gamers.
Squawk is a text and voice chat program geared towards gamers. Squawk Chat project uses the Speex codec for voice audio compression, ALSA for sound input and output, and GNU/ncurses to provide a simple text interface.

It is my hope that Squawk will eventually provide a Free alternative to Teamspeak and Ventrilo.

There are currently no releases for this project, but nightly svn snapshots are available from the download section.

Installation:

On GNU/Linux, make sure that Speex, ncurses, and ALSA are installed and
type 'sudo make install' in the source directory.

Running:

The Squawk server is called squawkd. You or one of your friends must run
the server, or you must find a public server, in order to be able to chat.
To start the server, simply run squawkd.

The Squawk client is called squawk. Run squawk, and type /connect some.host
in order to connect to a server. Once connected, some IRC-esque commands will
allow you to list, join, and part various channels on the server:

/connect - Connect to the specified server address. May be canonical name or
a numeric IP address

/disconnect - Disconnect from the current server.

/list - List channels currently on the server. Channels you are already in
will appear with an asterisk (*).

/join - Join the specified channel. The channel is automatically created on
the server if it does not yet exist.

/part - Part the specified channel. Others in the channel see that you have
left.

/quit - Disconnect from the server and quit squawk.

Alt-< and Alt-> cycle through the channels you are currently in, so that you
may maintain several conversations at once. Note that you will only ever hear
one channel at a time.
