I would like to ask the following questions:

  1. Are there any IRC programmes (local or web), plugins, features, etc. that allow for making rich-text formatting, either directly or through markup (e.g. markdown)?

  2. If not, then is there a way to give an IRC programme said capability?

But I'm not sure which site to ask on: StackOverflow or SuperUser.

On the one hand, I'm asking a question that may involve a markup language, so StackOverflow seems most appropriate for that. On the other hand, I'm asking about poweruser-esque capabilities of applications, so in that case SuperUser would be most appropriate.

Note: I'm not asking about any particular StackExchange or StackExchange-related feature or channel or whatever. I'm asking about IRC in general.

  • I'd suggest you inspect the available webclients for irc. If none of them hasn't already your wanted feature, you could easily implement it yourself. – ott-- Nov 26 '15 at 21:30
  • @gnat: Yeah, it seems to be a duplicate. My mistake. – SarahofGaia Nov 27 '15 at 0:26
  • @ott: How could I implement it myself? – SarahofGaia Nov 27 '15 at 0:26
  • That would answer my 2nd question. – SarahofGaia Nov 27 '15 at 0:27
  • Which is, @gnat, not actually a duplicate, AFAIK. – SarahofGaia Nov 27 '15 at 0:27

Neither. Software recommendations are off-topic on both.
