emacs-erc-hl-nicks 1.3.3 Nickname highlighting for Emacs ERC

erc-hl-nicks highlights nicknames in ERC, an IRC client for Emacs. The main features are:

  • Auto-colorizes nicknames without having to specify colors

  • Ignores certain characters that IRC clients add to nicknames to avoid duplicates (nickname, nickname’, nickname", etc.)

  • Attempts to produce colors with a sufficient amount of contrast between the nick color and the background color
