"the irc crate" is a thread-safe and async-friendly IRC client library written in Rust. It's compliant with RFC 2812, IRCv3.1, IRCv3.2, and includes some additional, common features from popular IRCds. You can find up-to-date, ready-to-use documentation online on docs.rs. To start using the irc crate with cargo, you can add irc = "0.13" to your dependencies in your Cargo.toml file. The high-level API can be found in irc::client::prelude. You'll find a number of examples to help you get started in examples/, throughout the documentation, and below.
