sbbs.el is a SchemeBBS client in Emacs. It implements browsing the thread list, threads and creating responses.

All development (version control, issue tracking, documentation, etc.) is done in this Fossil repository.

sbbs.el is in the Public Domain, published under the "CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain Dedication" license.

Quick Intro

sbbs.el is currently not part of any package repository (that we know of), so it must be installed manually. The steps for this are:

  1. Download the sources or clone+open the repo.
  2. Open sbbs.el and run package-install-from-buffer.
  3. Run M-x sbbs or M-x sbbs-browse (these two do the same), choose a board and start reading.

Consider installing Monafont or the Submona font, if you want Shift_JIS art to render correctly.
