Archangel: an RGTP client for Mozilla

Archangel lets you browse RGTP bulletin boards (such as GROGGS at Cambridge University) from within Mozilla. The protocol Archangel uses is:

There are several other RGTP clients available, for many platforms, and a free RGTP server is under development. Feedback about Archangel is welcome, either on GROGGS (item R2990216 is a good place to start) or by sending email to "archangel at marnanel dot org".

Archangel also serves as a simple demonstration of adding new protocols to Mozilla which is a little more in-depth than the "finger" example on Mozilla's site. However, it's not yet very beautiful or elegant, and there are many things I don't fully understand yet. The code does work, though.

Archangel is currently still under development. If you'd like to play with an early release, please continue to "how to install."

The archangel project can be contacted through the mailing list or the member list.
