Ultros has existed in one form or another since 2011, beginning its life as a humble IRC bot with a simple structure. Over time our needs for it evolved, and it quickly outgrew the basic hook-based approach we had taken with it. As the project progressed, we realised that Twisted would allow us to easily add support for multiple types of network — and so the concept for our project was born.
Many hours of work has passed since then to produce something we can be proud of, and that we find useful ourselves. We are not only developers — we are users of this project as well, and we believe that helps us to better provide support for the project and figure out where it should go next.
