Other mostly-legacy components

Iris is a legacy IRCv3.1 compliant web-based IRC client. It is in the process of being replaced with various websocket solutions on the typical IRCv3 stack deployment. No formal release has ever been made, but it is available at GitHub.

Atheme Web is a seriously outdated web interface for Atheme, do not use unless you are nuts. There's plenty of other ones out there which are better, search GitHub.
