dxirc - cross-platform IRC client

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

I contacted the developer and he explained that dxirc can be made to save settings inside program folder:
dxirc from version 0.10.3 has startup option -l [FILE] for location
config file.
So you can write in desktop shotcut for example:
D:\dejf\dxirc\dxirc-qt.exe -l D:\dejf\dxirc\dxirc-qt.ini
A short example how to run dxirc in portable mode:
- I extracted the archive to C:\Portable Programs\dxirc
- I created an empty dxirc-qt.ini file inside dxirc folder
- I create a desktop shortcut for dxirc-qt.exe and opened icon's Properties- Shortcut and changed Target from "C:\Portable Programs\dxirc\dxirc-qt.exe" to "C:\Portable Programs\dxirc\dxirc-qt.exe" -l "C:\Portable Programs\dxirc\dxirc-qt.ini"
Started this way dxirc stores its settings inside program folder but also creates an empty folder in AppData- C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\dxirc so dxirc is portable but not stealth.

The developer also told me that he might release a portable version for Windows which would use program folder for settings directly.

dxirc screen-shots:

I suppose that this thread might be moved to Portable Freeware Submission since dxirc is portable (but not stealth).

As promised the developer of dxirc has released native portable versions- go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/dxirc/files/1.20.0/ and download either dxirc-1.20.0-fox-portable.zip (Fox build) or dxirc-1.20.0-qt-portable.zip (Qt Build), extract the archive and simply run dxircfoxPortable.exe or dxircqtPortable.exe, all data is saved inside program folder without any need to tweak the start-up options.

Moderator, please move this thread to Portable Freeware Submission sub-forum.

  • A significant upfront difference between the two portable dxirc packages offered: the "Fox build" is 8MB, the "Qt build" is almost 26MB... :roll:

    Also, the portables follow PortableApps.com format arrangement.

That's because of the tool-kits used:
- Fox toolkit - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fox_toolkit
- Qt - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qt_%28software%29

All set. I also pulled the version number out of the thread title.

New release out 1.30.0 with what looks like fairly minor changes. Maybe there's more under the hood?
